Representing my library


A new library patron approaches me at the front desk of the library. They tell me that they have moved from a nearby library system and now live in this system. They would like a library card. I explain how this is all going to work and then tell them it is a good thing they moved, because our system is four percent better than their old system.

"Oh." This patron responds. "What makes you four percent better?"

"It is hard to quantify." I reply. "But mostly it has to do with how much more sassy our staff is than theirs."

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.
