A wanton woman

A patron just came up to the desk and asked if we had any books on winches.

Not being the most tool-inclined person, what did I hear?

“Do you have any books on wenches?”

Luckily my filter was on, so I did not in fact ask why the boy wanted books on prostitutes. I asked him to spell it, and he indicated that it was a tool, so I quickly went to dictionary.com to see what kind of tool it was. Danger was averted, albeit barely. Nothing to see here.

(If you were wondering, we have no books on winches. Or wenches.)
