Goodbye morning shift...

One thing I'm not going to miss is curly-haired computer lab assistance desk guy regaling his completely disinterested co-workers with his various exercise routines and eating practices. Seriously for like twenty minutes all I heard was,

"Yeah, I like eat so much over the weekend that I gain 5 pounds every weekend and then I lose it all over the next week. I don't even have to worry about like buying food during the week because my dad teaches on campus so I just stop by his office and my mom usually sends something for me with him..."

"Yeah so I don't know what I'm gonna do man it looks like my exercise bike is on the fritz so I'm gonna have to call the manufacturer or something."

I should feel sorry for whoever has to work for him, but since his not-so-delicate voice wafts its way over to me as well I, instead, choose to feel sorry for myself.

I just want to take a moment to remember the LRC as it is now and as it always should be. The funeral service was beautiful, and there were some really great tributes.

LRC Confession

Sometimes when people are bratty and demanding of me I get really happy that they forgot their cards because then I can say, "Oh, Sorry! We have to have your card. It's the library's new policy." which of course I'm not lying about but for those of you who know me I'm usually willing to work something out with the patrons....but obviously not if they're bratty and/or demanding.
