How I roll


You can take this as an example of how good I am at my job.

You can take this as an example of how bad I am at my job.

But you might just want to take this as an example of my job.

I answered the phone at my library. A patron said they got an automated call informing them that items they had were soon due. They wondered if they could renew them. Having them read me the barcode of their library card I went into their record. They had two items due in a day or two, and two more due in just under a week.

I explained this and asked, "Would you just like to renew the books due tomorrow, or should I renew all of them."

"Yes." The patron responded.

So I did.

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.
