Here are some of the things I worry about during long lonely evenings at the reference desk:
What if that patron I have been calling 'sir' actually identifies as a woman and she is just too polite or embarrassed to tell me?
What if every library gets as good about weeding as I wish ours were, and then my nutty patrons can't request old irrelevant books through interlibrary loan anymore?
Is having so many pseudoscience books on our shelves really the right thing to do?
What if the phone numbers and addresses I am giving out from our White Pages database are enabling our patrons to stalk people?
What if I am reinforcing the delusions of the mentally ill patrons when I treat their requests like they are reasonable?
Is it somehow wrong to say "same to you!" to patrons who tell me to have a blessed day if I don't believe in God or any other blessing entities?
Any answers welcome.
