This has not been a good week for bitter, surly liberry assistants, such as myself.
First Kammy K completely fails to give us any kind of
fight in returning her overdue book and now I can't even get a rise out
of Mrs. Carol Satan.
That's right, yet another Danielle "Get me, I write a
new book every three months--tee hee, just kidding, I really change all
the names and republish the same book repeatedly" Steel book us is out
and Mrs. Carol Satan was the first and only person on the hold list for
it. Great. So I call her and her phone wasn't even busy. It rang and
rang and eventually the machine picked up so I figured I wouldn't even
get to speak to her unsavoryness. Then, half way through her oddly
cheerful outgoing message, Carol herself picks up the phone.
I explained who I was, where I was calling from, what we were holding for her and that we would stop holding it for her on 3/16.
"Oh, very good," Mrs. Carol Satan said in an oddly cheerful voice. "I should be in for it on Monday. Thank you so much!"
Beyond being oddly cheerful, she seemed oddly genuine
about it. She even went so far as to repeat back to me the pull date.
Not even once did she royally bitch me out. Maybe she's trying to make
up for her utter defeat at my hands during her last visit.
