Whining

Grumpy librarians at the end of the work week, waiting for the library to be shut down so we can leave.


"I know I've been here all night and now it's two minutes before closing, but I want to check out all these books. And pay my fines. And renew my library card."


"It's 5:50 p.m., time for the lady who wants all the addresses to call. No, A as in AWFUL!"


"Why are the computers turned off? I need to print a thousand pages right now!"


"Katie, I can't get into Yahoo. Can't you tell me my password? Doesn't the library keep a list!?"

  2. does your library have "we're closing" warnings? Not that they affect the worst offenders...

    1. We have four, starting half an hour prior. For the last five minutes, 'goodbye'-themed music is playing over the PA system.
