Hitting the Wall

A popular online social network site allows one to express a thought as well as display pictures on a 'wall.'  Friends can add their comments to the wall or choose to 'like' what they see.  The dialogue below between three friends is fueled by a composite of various situations one might encounter working at a library, real or imagined.

Friend 1:  I'm going to the library today

Friend 2:  Like

Friend 3:  I go to the library often and browse the fiction shelves and look through the DVD collection.  There is something special I'm trying to find.

#2:  Like

#1:  Today I want to renew a DVD.  It has a whole year of episodes of a TV show my mom watched when she was a teenager.  I have one more disc to see, but I've renewed it 2 times already.

#3:  Isn't that the limit?

#1:  Yes, but maybe if no one else wants it I can get it again.

#3:  What's the name of the show?

#1:  'Dallas'

#3:  Hey, that's the one I"m trying to find.

#1:  I didn't think anyone else wanted it.  I'll return it tonight.

#2:  Like!
