I don't think I've had to work a Monday since starting this blog last November. This is a good thing, cause Monday's suuuuuuck.
"Oh, Juice," I hear you saying in a sing-song he doesn't know what he's talking about voice. "Monday's suck for everybody, not just you."
Yes, I am aware of this. But allow me to assure you, Mondays at the liberry suck even harder than all that. You know that new Catwoman movie
coming out this summer, starring Halle Berry in the title role? You
know that one? You focused on it? Okay, not to be gross, but that
movie's gonna suck some serious goat wang. In fact, my pal Joe says that
goats are already lining up with packs of cigarettes tucked into their
shirt sleeves, raring to go due to the extreme suckage that that movie's
gonna exert on the goat-wang populace.
Monday's at the liberry suck even more that that!
in theory, liberry Mondays don't look so bad. After all, we don't open
until 1 p.m. on Mondays, as opposed to the butt-crack of dawn 9 a.m.
(See, already I'm losing the sympathy of the early-rising readers.) And
we get to close at 5 instead of 7. This is really not so good, though.
despite the fact that the liberry has been opening at 1 p.m. for well
over a decade now, none of our patrons have actually paid attention to
this fact. Every Monday, Mrs. C--who normally works Mondays and comes in
at 9 anyway to get the Inter-Library Loans done--says that from the
time she gets to work until 1 she hears nothing but patron after patron
pounding on the door to get in, oblivious to the giant sign she's hung
on it that says we don't open until 1 p.m. No one reads the sign, at
least not until they've pounded on the door for a while first.
every week, once the doors are finally opened, Mrs. C hears the same
thing from a different patron: "When did you all start opening at 1 on
"Over ten years ago," she tells them.
Or better still, she'll hear: "You know, if you're going to start opening late/closing early on Mondays, you need to inform the public first."
Well, it's been well over a decade now. We think the public has had time enough to start paying some attention.
