Thank you! And a few Mofos
When I look for titles, I scan all of the books without converting the bunch of them to alphabetical order to determine the exact location of the book.
And to my 'uugh' about shelving unsorted carts of books....it looks like our new Aide likes to shelve this way...at least the small green ones that the circ fills up for us to unload. I'm not familiar with her enough yet to ask her why.
Now, on to a couple of Mofos--
*I get that you are brand new to computers and we helped you set up your e-mail accounts and get settled in. But I think you don't understand the purpose of a password. It seems like half the people we help can't remember their passwords. I think we need to up the importance on telling the patrons that remembering the password is required, or to suggest that they use their favorite pet+favorite number and call it good.
*PLEASE don't tell me all the details of this custody case you are working on/how you are divorcing your husband/how you are suing xxx for xxx. I'm just the lowly person who gets paid to help you print/copy things. As much as I smile and nod along with your tale, I. do. not. care.
*Dear coworkers, please check the library tag as you are placing things on our hold shelves. Some libraries in our system mix up holds and accidentally place them in our box. I've taken to scanning the shelves once a week and I find at least 3-5 items each time that don't belong there.
*Pushing buttons on our copier has consequences. "Why is it asking me to enter my address?"--asked of me while she pushes a few buttons to try to make it go away. Me: "Looks like someone pushed a button they weren't supposed to" *Puts it back on Copy mode and not Scan mode.*
