My head is going to explode! I know what's wrong with ME(I'm quitting smoking against my will), but what the fuck is wrong with EVERYBODY ELSE! This lady just came and talked to me like I was 2, and like she was the smartest person in the world, but when I answered her questions she JUST DIDN'T GET IT! I explained everything in plain English, and pointed her in the right direction (She wanted a journal article, so I pointed to where they were and told her they were in ALPHABETICAL ORDER{imagine that, in a library}by the title of the journal{which she had a list of on the piece of paper in her hand} ). I'm pretty sure that's not hard to understand. She wanted me to show her exactly where they{each title} were on the shelf. Then instead of the SCHOLARLY JOURNAL she was supposed to have, she wanted to Google search{no offense Google guys, I love your searches, y'all are my boyz} for a WEB PAGE because she didn't want to pay to make copies of the articles in the scholarly journals(that I had to point out the exact location of{each title} ). That's just one example of the total morons I've been dealing with today. It's a good thing I don't have a baseball bat.

I have a niece who will be 2 in March. She recently learned the word that all parents of small children fear and loathe: Why?
My brother's response to this was: That's a bad word. We don't say that.

My brother is a funny guy.
It didn't work. She's still saying it.

If you see me today, I would advise turning and running the other way. I'm not being very pleasant.

I work in a library. Libraries are known for being quiet places. Students come to my library for a quiet place to study and do their homework. These same students have the loudest most obnoxious cell phone rings. We have signs posted EVERYWHERE saying please turn off your cell phone in the library. Now, I don't really expect people to turn their phones all the way off, but they should turn their ringers off. I shouldn't have to constantly be telling people, "Please turn off your ringer,""You can't talk on that in here," etc. Also, when I tell them these things, they shouldn't look at, or talk to me like I'm a bitch. They are the fucking bitches who are completely disregarding other people's need for a quiet library. The world does not revolve around them! These people are college students, they should be able to read the signs and follow instructions.

If you are a person who talks on their cell phone or lets it ring in the library, please stop. It is very frustrating to the library employees, and may cause some sweet librarians brain to hemorrhage and them bleed to death because they just can't take it anymore.

Okay, to all of you who don't know it, it's creepy to talk to people in a public restroom, no matter how well you know them. A public restroom is not a social setting!
K, here's what brought this to my attention. I'm at work. I went into the restroom to use the restroom, not to socialize. One of the other ladies from work was in there, and she started talking to me. How awkward & uncomfortable it is to try to pee when someone else is trying to carry on a conversation with you. I didn't interrupt her peeing with conversation. Why did she think it was okay to interrupt mine?
