Which Part of “All” Didn’t You Understand

Yesterday, Peanut and I dropped by the Miller Branch of the Howard County Library. We had some books to return and she was given ownership of that task.

“You know where to put them don’t you?” I inquired as we hustled inside from the cold and wet afternoon.

“I only know where the DVD’s go,” she responded just loud enough for Donna LaBelle to hear her. Donna was working the Information Desk.
Before I could say anything Donna pointed to large red sign with white letters above the return slot. "All" is in caps.

“We get asked this a lot,” she said.

I guess I'm not surprised.
