There are more and more patrons coming into the library covered in calamine lotion, with oozing eyes, and suffering from other very obvious and probably contagious health problems. Mmm. I just love helping someone find a book when touching the same surfaces will very likely make me rush to the store to buy calamine lotion, too. Thanks for sharing that, guys.
If I could pull it off, I would try to act all grandmotherly and politely convince them to go home and take care of themselves. Might have to wait a few years before I can do that.
People are also starting to answer their cell phones more often in the library. I really don’t mind that, since it adds a new layer of entertainment to my day. I’ll be working on a spreadsheet when a phone rings with, “If you want my body and you think I’m sexy.” I look up and am surprised every single time by the person who picked that as their ringtone. Really? That’s your song? The song/patron combo changes every day, and the shock remains. People are funny.
