library etiquette #106

This is from A Librarian's Guide to Etiquette:

Every library's personnel roster should include someone to fill each of the following character roles:

  • the village idiot
  • the insecure scholar
  • the Pollyanna
  • the skanky slut
  • the pretty one

It is recommended to write these roles into people's job descriptions so that you don't end up with more than one idiot.

I would also like to add some other players, so no one is left out.

  • the dumper (the buck doesn't stop here! It bureaucractically gets passed on)
  • the constant coffee drinker/heavy breather (not always the same person, but usually there is a correlation)
  • the everything critic (so glad you loved that rerun of Family Guy. Excuse me if I don't laugh while you botch up the joke and the impression of Stewie's voice.)
