Making work work

Another Sunday at the library. I work every other one of these, usually after three days off. Upon my reintroduction I was mad at so many things about the library that it would take several thousand blog posts to address them all. I've been at this daily for six years. I'm about a third of the way there. When life gives you lemons...

Someone, we'll call him Jake, who doesn't normally work on Sundays, was here for some complicated schedule make-up reason. This irritated me. But I figured I'd better get a grip.

"I know you're not normally here on Sundays." I said to him in greeting "But at 2 o'clock on Sundays we all gather together for prayers."

I am always a little surprised and a little delighted at how many of my co-workers respond so well to this sort of thing. "We gather in the parking lot and hold hands." He said, nodding.

"Don't worry." I reassured him. "It's totally non denominational."

Eh. It's not so bad here.

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.
