Hey thanks, Boss of Boss, for telling her that pages can't work more than 4 hour shifts anymore, and that she can't give out extra hours to pages out of the budget of the staff person who quit that we're not replacing. I would have appreciated your disregard of my ability to assess my own personal risk for repetitive motion injuries against the need for more money at the best of times, but it's especially awesome now, right after thanksgiving, when the combination of pages going on vacation and the library being closed for 3 days now means we have no empty carts, none, and the ones that we do have are stacked double- and triple-deep with books. But, you're right, extra shelving man hours would totally cause anarchy within the library. We can totally shelve all these materials, and go through a weeks worth of emails, and run the holds list, and pull expired holds, and check in the delivery, and get totally caught up in no time at all.
