“Hey, will you all shut up. I’m trying to study here!” Okay, the volume of my voice was counterproductive to this library environment.
The whole library got silent, but not for long.
“Who are you to boss us around? You’re not the librarian, you know.” Kalyani fired right back.
“I never claimed to be.” My voice returned to normal. “It’s just that you’re all being too loud over here.”
