Miss Information is not annoyed by a cell phone user

This actually happened. Miss Information was speaking with a patron when the woman’s cell phone rang. The customer took the phone out of her pocket and actually turned it off. Really. Apparently those things really do have an off setting. Usually library users just stand at the reference desk and catch up with their friends while poor Miss Information is stuck trying to locate obscure statistics on the immigration of basket weavers during the potato famine without anyone paying any attention to her. And all she really wants is to be included in their conversations...

Of course she did bump her head really really hard on a book truck yesterday and there is a minute possibility she has a concussion or is delirious, but she prefers to believe that this is the start of a new exciting trend of civility among cell phone users.

Or is she insane?

Unfortunately, for the rest of us, it may just be a sign of a new exciting trend of civility among library users.

Tiny Little Librarian is very envious, as she always gets the idiots who think nothing of yakking away while she's looking up their basket weaving statistics. It makes Tiny Little Librarian very sad and angry.

Haven't noticed it here. In fact the more we tell people the less they listen.
