library etiquette #106
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.)
