Safe in my genius

I was out at the desk when a library patron came up needing help. He was working on a patent application. He was having problems attaching one of his PDF files. I went out to help him and it gets pretty boring at that point, from a literary standpoint, though we were both pretty interested while it was happening. Ultimately I had him create a new file and name the file differently and everything worked.

"You're a genius." He said.

So I went to the back room to tell everyone that I was a genius. They humored me plenty. Young Thao said "Does this mean they'll give you a promotion?"

"No." I answered sadly. "We don't have promotions around here."

Unfortunately we're more of a "stick" library than a "carrot" library. 

On the plus side maybe I'm safe from getting whacked for the rest of the evening.

Post a Comment

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.
