Yesterday was the day from hell....It was a FOOL MOON
I work in a public library and not only was it freaking cold after 2 days of rain & snow (which I am Not complaining about) but we had the Cranks come in.
Now, I know this is a RICH community and the people here are born "entitled"...however...
1st: We had a VIP come in who had lost a children's paperback... she claims that the policy of giving her 90 days to locate it and if not found pay for it was "Unfair", because she left the book on the counter (not the slot) and "someone must have taken the book off the counter, not knowing they had to check it out, and took it home with them....I'm going to write the (Board of) supervisors about this" So in order to shut her up and make her go away, I just removed the item from her record.
2nd: After this "VIP" left, we were going through the returns and...lo & behold we came across one of our magazines that was totally water damaged. Guess who was responsible for that? Ayup, you guessed it, the VIP!
3rd: Mr. Pink Hair came in and gave me hell for not carrying academic materials and having to either pay $3 per title to order them from one of the UC's, or having to drive 5-10 miles to use one of the UC's libraries...and then he complained to me about the UC's keeping two different books by the same author in two different libraries. As if I would know that...and to think he had the nerve to ask me "Did you go to library school...well what did they teach you there?"
4th: Mr. Pink returned a few minutes later and continued his rant about having to wait an hour to use the #5 Free Internet (yes I know we have 6 but he insists on #5).
