My work here


A man and a woman approach me at the front desk of the library. The man is wearing a T-shirt that reads "St. Paul". I don't remember how the woman was dressed. The man has an armful of books from the nearby, St. Paul, City library system. The woman asks "Can we still return books from another library system in your book return?"

"Yes, you can." I answer. "But," I add portentously as they are turning towards our return slot in the front lobby, "The person returning the books needs to be wearing the name of the library system the books belong to on their shirt."

And the crazy thing it that I am paid exactly the same as anyone else in my job classification!

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.
