Miss Information is annoyed by librarians

Having discovered this week that her plans to join the librarian ranks have once again been derailed--this time by a sodding technicality, Miss Information has become resentful. While most of her bitterness is directed at the members of the academic world who, although she's been in regular contact with them, did not bother to mention this little glitch to her earlier. Like maybe before the semester started and she could have done something about it.

But oh, well. Maybe it's unfair to take out her frustration on those who have managed to get into the librarian club, but hell, revenge is sweet and Miss Information suddenly has a lot more time on her hands.

Here's the situation. It's Friday. The branch is short staffed. The school board who also have a spot on Miss Information's enemy list, have given the evil bastard children the day off. This means the library is stupidly busy. During the lunch hour Miss Information is scheduled with a certain librarian. This librarian quickly realizes that the staffing situation is untenable. She decides to fix the problem in the only logical way--by leaving the desk herself.

Amazingly, this foolproof plan did not help, in fact it made things about 50% worse. In her time away from the desk she did manage to arrange extra staff for the evening shift.

Unfortunately, this extra staff member was under the impression that she was only there for special training and not to actually work at reference. Still, the supervising librarian was confident that it was all running smoothly and once again left the desk, abandoning poor Miss Information for the second time that day.

Luckily for the world, all the children having used up their Internet time for the day had gone home, leaving Miss Information to plot revenge between reference questions.

(Insert evil laugh here)

I am always abandoned at the reference desk...It makes you homicidal.
