Of course, I don't know what offends me the most, the fact that she was bragging (in a backhanded way) about never finishing a book or the fact that none of the enterprising librarians who must have passed through her life ever found a book for this reader.

"You spoiled my apple."
"You smudged my blackboard."
"You made the rest of us look like we actually did graduate in the bottom third of our class and just barely passed our certification tests."
Here endeth the rant.
