Miss Information channels Dr. Seuss--badly

Every Who down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot
Miss Information, who’s not on vacation did not.
Her supervisors waved a cheery goodbye as they said
“We’re leaving. You do Sunday’s payroll instead.”

How hard could that be? She’d done payroll before.
The workload was only a little bit more.

She worked through the night to get it all done
And she paid them all, paid every single last one.
She paid Michael and Charlie and Sam Miller too.
The last on the list was Cindy-Lou Who.

Days later she phoned, Cindy-Lou was dismayed
She wanted to know why she hadn’t been paid.
Now Miss Information was baffled, it’s true
She was certain she’d paid little Cindy-Lou Who.

A short time later the answer was known
Little Candy-Lou Who was now on the phone.
She had questions about her Sunday pay
She wasn’t working at all on that day.

Miss Information straightened it out, never fear
But she’s scheduling Christmas vacation next year.

Miss Information has payroll access to only a small sample of library employees--which she forgot. So, she accidentally paid someone named Candy Ng who she's never met but has payroll access to, instead of Cindy Ng who she's also never met, who should have been paid but isn't on Miss Information's employee list, because she failed to recognize that the names "Cindy" and "Candy" are different and therefore represent totally different people.

Some days she just isn't detail oriented.

Not badly at all! Good chuckle after a long Friday.

The Reader admires Miss Information's channeling, and hopes there will be more in the future.
