I work at a highly rated public library as a reference librarian. About five years ago while working at the desk, a boy in an elaborate pirate costume walked past. I decided to look up a Wikipedia article about one famous pirate known for placing burning <edit> <pirate's name clue edited out>(name omitted for privacy ). As I was reading his real last name I was interrupted by a woman who approached me. She told me she had just been divorced and needed to change her name back to her maiden name. She told me her last name, and it was the same last name as the famous pirate I just had my eyes on! An uncommon name. I was dumbfounded! I have had many other odd sychronicities in the library, but that tops them.
