Miss Information is inspired by a patron's suggestion

February, the month of library fundraising is thankfully over, culminating with an exciting raffle of bookends. Not, unfortunately the ugly metal bookends the library has thousands of, but some "nice" bookends donated by some store or other. As Miss Information keeps as far away from the fundraising campaign as she possibly can, she did not either enter the raffle ($10.00!) or publicise it to any customer. Ten bucks is ten bucks after all. Also, the bookends? Frankly, not all that "nice".

Anyway, one of Miss Information's co-workers shared a little anectdote with her today. It seems that one of the people who had entered the draw showed up at the library and became incensed that she had not been informed that her ticket had not won one of the fabulous prizes. There were other prizes up for grabs but Miss Information didn't pay any attention. She supposes this woman had never entered a contest, bought a lottery ticket, got involved in a hockey pool...either that or she'd led an amazingly charmed life right up to this very minute.

At any rate, Miss Information likes her suggestion and volunteers to telephone all the unsuccessful contest entrants. She thinks the script would go something like this:

"Hello. This is the library calling. You're a loser. Yep. A really big loser. Have a nice day."

On second thought, that "have a nice day" part might be optional.

In fact, Miss Information likes this idea so much, she would even be willing to make these calls when there isn't a contest.

Miss Information has been wondering where all the comment-leavers have gone.

She attempted to change the settings so anyone could comment, but suspects that she actually restricted it so only she could comment. While she does enjoy talking to herself, this makes life pretty lonely.

The other alternative, too depressing to imagine, is that no one wants to talk to her anymore.

Hope that isn't the case...

One of the radio stations out of Milwaukee, WI, has a morning show whose call-ins are told "Have a crappy day."

I'd use that.

I like the loser idea. Let me make a list.
And on another note glad that the restrictions are off. What did team member mean anyway?

It mainly means that Miss Information shouldn't try to be innovative when she's brain dead and half-blind from a solid week of copy detailing. Her clicking is way off under these circumstances.

Actually it's "Have a crappy day, injoy your crummy job."
