I have a dream...

that I send secret info to all the board members and the paper of the waste this current administration leaving in their wake. We have a director and assistant director who are clueless, one more then the other. Though I partially blame the board for some of their hiring practices also. That is why dreams are nice, they make you feel good for a little bit then you have to wake up. Just because someone was a librarian or manager doesn't mean they make for a good administrator.

I'm sure I'm not alone.

Heck no, you're not alone! My dream is to drop an info bomb on our college president that he's likely to lose the best librarian (Librarian X, a colleague) he's ever had for a particular degree plan because of an idiot co-worker (B, another colleague). X has won many professional awards. X makes the college prez look really good to the state roster of politicians. B is a toxic personality who doesn't have enough to do and instead of finding ways to increase item circulation stats by getting those items into the hands of the students and staff has instead decided to keep track of everyone's error rate. Even if it's someone from another dept., B will add another scratch mark on your list of sins on B's sooper-secret files.

B feels that a soon-to-open position for Library Director is B's to inherit. When X was put in charge of the library during an absence of the Director, B walked up to X and said right out, "I don't see why you were put in charge, I should have been put in charge because I'm better." Funny how B sees no need to improve their library skills while X has been honing them left and right. Anyway, I'd love to tell Prez that X is ready to jump ship at the first opportunity because B has made that library such a hellacious, toxic waste dump that only the most desperate for employment are willing to work there.

I've had this dream too. I've also had the nightmare of my library director, the Queen of Vengeance, figuring out who blew the whistle....
