"I'd like to pick up my DVD hold." "Looks like the hold expired and it was sent back." "Can you put it back on hold for me? I really want to watch it." "Sure, whats the title?" "I don't know."

This guy comes in every month or so with a new girlfriend and always the same reference question- 'Do you have books on Satanism?' I think that's his way of wooing his new lady friends.

Just when I thought this week couldn’t get any crazier, a coworker called me from the circ desk to inform me that there was a BAT flying around the library.

When the flyer for the program says middle and high school kids, it means MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL KIDS. Not your 3 year old. So yeah, you were turned away.

Waking up with the same headache I went to bed with last night does not bode will for the day.

Why call reference with a detailed question while driving? You can't take down my answer, and your not asking us to hold a book for you. So whats the point?

If you're a mother at a public library calling an academic library about books assigned to your child by a professor from that academic institution you might be missing the point of college.

When a patron is still browsing past closing and gets an attitude with your coworkers for telling her we need to close. Like, surprise, librarians don’t actually sleep here.

Just got off the phone from arguing with a patron who claimed an audiobook was missing its last disc all along. That's why we have to -override- audiobook checkouts by putting in a code after counting the discs. Argh.

Checked a huge summer reading prep item off my to-do list today. It felt sooooo good. I’m freaking out a little less that it’s only 3 weeks away.

I can hear some guy singing in the library, but I don't want to tell him to be quiet because dang he's good!

Young man walks out of the library after a screaming match with an older sister. Her: Can't you keep him in the library? (Screaming) Me: No, we can't stop people from leaving. Her: You're useless. (Storms out) Me (Internally) I am entertained.

Me: does anyone have any questions? (7th graders raises hand): Do your feet hurt from standing all day? Me: --- (also me: makes mental note to specify ABOUT THE SUMMER READING PROGRAM OR THE BOOKS.)

Student, repeatedly hitting a book on the table. Me: You know, these books need to last a long time so a lot of people can read them. So if you could not do that, that'd be great. Other student: Oooh, you just got roasted by the librarian.

Trying to be a good human and exercise landed me with painful blisters on the balls of my feet. After limping all day, I'm sitting with my feet up tonight.
