A co-worker I was at the front desk with misinterpreted some small event and wanted to know if library cards can be restricted from checking out video games.

"No." I said. But I didn't feel it was the full detailed answer I like to give, so I added "But a parent can fill out a form to put restrictions on their child's card. So, technically, yes." But now I was on a roll so I added "But I have only ever seen bad, crazy parents put any restrictions on their child's card."

She said "You're very judgmental."

And then she took an excruciatingly long time to register two people for library cards, over complicating the whole thing and telling them an endless litany of pointless information, while I had to handle all the work of the front desk for the next 45 minutes.

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.
