HD is more like a library than an information kiosk,

imagine the reaction you would get requesting (or demanding)

the librarian read you a book.

That's easy. It's the building that used to have books in it, but the "snowflakes" had the books that offended them (all of them) removed and they now have "safe spaces" and "crying rooms" there.

Sorry, you're right. Just got a burr under my saddle. Mea Culpa.

What I meant was the standard response in the military when you're called on the carpet:
