"Afternoon, Ms. Potts," Andy said, walking through the door of the Human Library.

"Andy, you still haven't returned the book from the cooking section."

"But...she cooks so well...One more week...I'll pay the overtime fee."

"Fine," she said. "So, what d'ya need?"

"A maid. Relatives are coming to town."

"Get the book marked Marie."

He got Marie down from the shelf and walked her to the door.

"I expect her returned without being folded, spindled or mutilated."

At 5 PM Ms. Potts clocked out and went to the Handyman section. She had some maintenance that needed to be done at home.

    I have no clue why an idea like this popped in my head, but I wrote it anyway.

    Well why not! Good to see that Ms Potts is getting maintained. Does the Human Library loan come with tools? And what’s the waiting list for Masseusery?

    Sorry, Neville, I believe their policy is first come first serve.

    Thanks, Jamie. A bit Twilight Zone-ish but I thought it was a strangely interesting idea.
