We have an old gentleman customer who gets free liquorice from the nearby Halva factory. Every week, he brings us one or two bags of fresh liquorice, which is nice. Many locals have lived in Pitäjänmäki all their lives, so you get to know your customers. For example, there is a mischievous boy who often comes to the library and once said he wanted to be a paramedic. He said to me that we might some day meet each other in an ambulance. I do hope not!
