Mister Information Professional Fail

A mostly Spanish-speaking patron came up to ask if we had a particular film. It was “Mi Bella Genio” and we did not have it. I even gave WorldCat a workout and could not find it. I really tried. And I tried variations on it, Mi with Bella or Bella with Genio, etc. Nothing, or nada, as we non-Spanish speakers who give it a shot anyway like to say. She went away sadly, not really believing that we would not have it. It was a very good comedia, evidently.

She called me over to a computer a little while later and I instantly regretted not googling Mi Bella Genio. She showed me the box cover of the DVD. Mi Bella Genio would be “I Dream of Jeannie” for the gabachos among us. Fail fah fail fail fail.
