Questions of the Week

Man about 60 --  Hi, I sent something to the printer 2 or 3 days ago; do you think it would still be there?

Me -- No, sorry, the jobs are only kept for two hours.


Man about 50 --  Where do you archive your magazines?

Me -- The magazine room is right this way.  We keep magazine issues for 3 to 6 months depending on how often each is published.  We keep newspapers for a week.


Woman about 50 -- Is there someone here who can do research?

Me -- I'm one of the librarians here.

Woman -- Oh, you're a research librarian.

Me -- Yes, how can I help you?

Woman -- Oh, do I have a question for you!

The question wasn't something I could answer as I work in a public, not legal, liberry.
