Much "liberry" craziness did ensue today during my 10 hour shift.
short version: Today we were seiged by two computer neophytes at the
same time, both of whom were determined to write highly detailed last
minute research papers and/or work-related reports with precise spacing
requirements, and neither of them had brought a clue as to how to operate a word processor.
In an act of service-oriented chivalry, I helped them both, showed them
how to accomplish their goals and made them happy, all the while manning
the circ-desk and answering the ever-ringing phone solo. I didn't even
resent them once. I rule!
We were also paid typical though unexceptional visits by both Wal-Mart Jesus and Chester the (Potential) Molester.
Wal-Mart Jesus wanted copies made. Chester ostensibly came in for more
FAFSA forms, but then asked if we had any computers free. I told him
they were all full, which was true. Chester failed to ask, however, if any of the
computer users were out of time so he was SOL on that front
And with both Mrs. A and Mrs. C out of the building we were, of course, phoned by Mr. Kreskin.
just when I thought I would go completely mad from hunger and sore
legs, my sweet wife dropped by unexpectedly with take-out and we were
able to dine together. I was so calm and at ease that I even let Brice use the computer. (Hey, he paid for his copies; that's all I really ask.)
All in all, though, it was an okay day and frankly could have been a lot worse. But I got it all done, pretty much by myself.
However, if I hear another phone ring it's getting lobbed in the road.
