Breaking in the new guy


After a long hiatus, we are training some new library circulation workers, these to work as substitutes because for mysterious reasons we no longer hire any new, regularly scheduled staff no matter how desperately anyone needs them. I was introduced to the first one of these trainees this morning. We'll call him Cody. A manager said "Feldenstein, this is Cody, he's going to be a circ sub."

I shook Cody's hand and said to him "It's a great job because you get to operate under water."

I think it's best the new people get used to me as soon as possible.

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.
