Man-- Hi, can you put this (half gallon of orange juice) in your staff refer until I leave today?


Sorry, that's not a service we provide!  And he looked at me with starry eyes, questioning what he would do with the OJ.

Cookie Monster on Twitter

Liberrian wasn't happy with Cooooooookie Monster!

Recipe for Disaster

Consider this situation on a Friday afternoon--

The man on the Internet #17 is the one who yells at me because the Internet is slow.  He tells me to contact the IT department.  I offer him a customer survey and he says -- "give me the fucking form."

The woman on Internet #18 is the woman who can't tolerate any noise in the liberry.  We've had numerous incidents involving her.

Add in the guy on the Internet computer across from #17 who can't get his yell phone to stop playing extremely LOUD music.

What do we get?

The woman called 911 because "people were being disrespectful and disturbing the peace."

The sheriff came.  What a waste of his time.  And a waste of my time too since I had to write the report!

Liberrian Jewelry

I've had the Kate Spade necklace for a few years, but today I got the liberrian ring!

Not allowed

A man was standing by the desk and washing his feet with the hand sanitizer.  The LIII walked by and told him that bathing is not allowed in the liberry.  He left, and she removed the hand sanitizer dispenser from public view.

One of the homeless men gave me some chocolate for Christmas.  He said, "I give chocolate to my angels."

Quote from a regular

Everything I come up with is a great idea.  If I come up with any more ideas I'm gonna blow up!  Ha ha!

Woman with stroller -- Excuse me, I am going around in circles.  Where are the Ys?  I'm looking for an author named Young, and your shelf ends at W.

I showed her the shelf under the Ws with a couple Xs, some Ys and Zs.

Woman -- Oh, sorry!

Security Guard Sub

This guy about 18, if that, served as the sub to our security guard yesterday.  He came to the desk when he first arrived and said -- I'm sorry, I have no idea what I am supposed to do.  Like, what is my civic duty?

Children, hygienic

Matilda recently had a class visit from some first graders, and they all sent her thank you notes.

My favorite one:

"Dear Ms. Librarian,
Thank you for sharin your Libereinand.
I lick all the bux."
[With drawing of a book(?) labeled "all About bux"]

Nice try

A customer apparently lost the DVD artwork for this movie and very kindly made us a replacement, including the barcode and everything!

Phone Call

Hi, this is Amy at the liberry, how can I help you?

Yeah, I need to check if my books are ready to be picked up.

Yes, it says that you have 3 books to be picked up by the 20th.

Are you absolutely sure they are there?

I can go check the shelf to verify they are here.

OK, cuz if anyone TOUCHES a those books, I will have your neck!
