Miss Information is annoyed by the Christmas crankiness

It’s Christmas so of course everyone is filled with the joy of the season. Well there was this one patron who wasn’t. She started off by telling Miss Information that she had the day off, making Miss Information terribly jealous. Miss Information has been bitter and cranky since she realized that Christmas gets her exactly one extra day off. Ho, ho, ho.

The woman wanted to know where the closest location of the Magic Bus Travel Agency was. Miss Information used Google maps to find several locations. The woman complained bitterly that none were close enough. Miss Information wasn’t very sympathetic but gave her a print out of the locations anyway.

Next the woman wanted to know where she could learn the fine art of garnishing. Miss Information suggested some of the wonderful library books in stock that would teach the woman fancy fruit cutting techniques. The woman scoffed. She wasn’t interested in a book, she wanted a class. Now where were the classes?

Miss Information went back to Google where the woman proceeded to criticize her search techniques. “Don’t use ‘garnish’ use ‘food art’! Now try searching for vegetarian cooking classes! Now try ‘culinary art’!”

What Miss Information actually wanted to try was shoving the woman into an oven but she restrained herself. After completing several unsuccessful searches, she suggested that the woman broaden her search to include all culinary schools and then call around to ask if they might teach garnishing classes.

The woman had been annoyed with Miss Information since she made that crazy “read a book” suggestion earlier and this new advice didn’t make her any happier. “I came to the library so you could help me find the information! You’re not helping at all! If I wanted to do it myself, I would have stayed home!”

Well, Merry Christmas to you too, lady. Miss Information would like you to know that fruit is awesome to begin with and so carving it into whimsical shapes is just a giant waste of effort.

I love your blog! I work at a nonprofit thrift store for building materials, and this post made me snicker. I think that the same demanding people that come to your library also frequent our store.

What Overlook Info in fact planned to try has been pushing the woman in to a good stove yet the girl controlled Gold WOW himself. Soon after completing many not successful searches, she advised how the lady expand your ex research Cheap World Of Warcraft Gold to include most culinary arts universities and then get in touch with about to question whenever they may possibly teach garnishing lessons.

Over was frustrated using Miss Details given that she manufactured that nuts ?¡ãread a new book WOW Gold EU recommendation previously this also brand-new advice didn't create the woman's virtually any happier. ?¡ãI found the particular library so that you might help me personally obtain the details! You're certainly not assisting in any respect! If I wanted to get it done personally, I might have got remained residence!
