Patron Quirks

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.
