The extra services I provide

This is how I do my job. I am upstairs in the non fiction section, shelving through the travel section. I am at Canada. A patron approaches me. "Are you shelving?" She asks.

"Yes." I reply.

"Where is Hawaii?" She inquires.

Using elaborate demonstrative hand gestures I say "Hawaii is a group of islands located in the Pacific Ocean."

I know, but don't worry. I showed her where all our many Hawaii travel guidebooks were grouped together. Plus she can now skip the little geographic part at the start of those books.


  1. May all the satvam in all the realms continue 2 benefit from your compassion.

    1. Needing just the tiniest of reminders as to what a satvam is I looked it up on the Internet. I found a well reviewed vegetarian Indian Buffet in Karnataka, India.

      If they can continue to benefit from my compassion more power to them.


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
