|C/O Cracked.com, "25 Honest Lunchbox Letters"|
This is also Day 3 of a week-long Reference Question Tally. We do these twice a year in our department, which I understand is way better than the daily tallies others make, but it is the first time I've ever done this.
Being me, I usually go about unaffected by any kind of crazy questions or requests I get. But, now that I am forced to think about it, my humor radar is sharply attuned.
Here's a few choice questions I've heard in the past few days:
“Where’s the librarian?” (To her credit this was a no-blazer day for me)
“Can’t you just use your computer to look it up?” (Well, yeah I could, but the quickest way to find out if we have a book here is to look for it here. Case in point :)
“Do you have to use your computer? The last one took so long, it was like ten minutes.” (Well, yeah, because you want really weird things, and you have a short attention span and/or a warped sense of the passage of time. I told her to go look around and I’d bring it to her—such service!)
“What’s the first month of summer?” (Am I doing your homework for you?)
“Do you have the magic pickle with the peapod shooter?” (Okay I actually found this book for her, it was in the Magic Pickle series of graphic novels; it’s just funny to actually spell out common questions we hear every day. Sounds like it would make for a great Christmas toy)
