Esther: Yes but we don’t have a policy against “compliments”.

    Sadly, we all have these. Too creepy to ignore, to harmless to report.

    Just a technical aside (nothing to do with the content of this set of panels): this is the first time I’ve seen the names of the regular characters, i.e., employees of this library, omitted. Like other regular readers of this great strip since it began, I know that these characters are Esther and Jody. I suppose this is just an unintentional slip?
