Getting the job done
One of my not very good at all co-workers came to me while I was manning the phones at my library. She handed me an envelope. It was an open piece of mail from an insurance company. The envelope said it was very important.
My not very good at all co-worker said "This was found in a book."
"What would you like me to do with it?" I asked.
"Merlion (Another not very good at all co-worker) found it and gave it to me. I thought you could call the person it belongs to."
"I don't usually call people." I said. "But I'll take care of it."
I looked in the envelope. It was a bit of meaningless information from four and a half months ago. I threw it in the recycling.
I guess that's why so many people from all over the library route their problems over to me. I'm always willing to take on these extraordinarily complex issues.
