Miss Information is annoyed by the not-so-niceIt has been a week of wackiness at the nice library. A new librarian started and was immediately labelled a pervert by one of the regulars. Thanks Crazy Woman. You’ve saved Miss Information a lot of “getting to know the new guy and figure out whether he’s a pervert” trouble. Apparently this woman has a history of accusing library staff of various evil deeds. Miss Information is working with a pervert, a child molester and a serial killer. And they all seem so nice. Boy, does Miss Information ever suck at judging people.
While we are on the subject however, why does this woman keep coming back to a place that is filled with degenerates and criminals?
After hearing this story one of Miss Information’s friends replied that murdering people seemed like more effort than library staff generally want to exert. Please note: Miss Information’s friend said this. Maybe she agrees, maybe she doesn’t.
Another guy took his brand new library card over to a catalogue terminal and inserted it into the disk drive. “I thought it was like a bank machine,” he whined. Miss Information wanted to slap some sense into him but it was too close to closing time.
Her first customer on Saturday snarled at Miss Information because she misheard his request for the address of Planned Parenthood. She thought he said “Command Parenthood” which also seems like a reasonable possibility. She told him she couldn’t hear him over the voices in his head, but that didn’t help. It did cheer Miss Information up though.
The second customer was a woman with $38 in fines who whined that it was too much money. Miss Information suggested that the woman bring back her stuff on time. Also the lady doesn’t think she should have to pay the replacement price of the lost book on her record…because she lost the book. It's not like she still has it or anything. Miss Information hasn’t had enough coffee to cope with this sort of logic. Frankly there may not be enough coffee in the world.
Miss Information has 5 more hours left in this week. She hopes a plague of locusts closes the library early.
