Robert Behn? Robber Baron?

I'm getting old, and the teen is inarticulate which makes communication difficult. After trying to find out if the author's name is perhaps Robert Ben or maybe the book is about the infamous Robber Barons of the 19th century, I finally figured out that he wanted a rubber band. This is good, because we have nothing by a Robert Ben, or Ben. And our biography of Jay Gould was probably above his reading level.

Very cute. The other day a slobbery child asked for "Water fountain?" and my coworker thought the kid said "ear phones?" and told him, "You have to bring your own from home."
I fixed the misunderstanding, but the look on the child's face was priceless.
