Librarians Get All the Fun
I want to know why dont librarians smile more? It seems like theyre always stressed out or are grumpy (or maybe they just dont like me? lol).
It just doesnt make sense to me! I mean, here they have the greatest job ever right? Is there something I dont know about being a librarian? They probably get first dibs on good books coming out, they get to work around books ALL DAY (Im so jealous) and discover new ones as they come across the counter, they get to learn about their patrons by the books they check out (that in itself would make the job so interesting lol), and its a nice, quiet environment in which they get to smell that lovely book-smell that should be bottled. 😉 I just dont get it, it seems like so many libraries I go to have librarians that either seem high-and-mighty or too stressed to smile back at you. There are exceptions, of course. But it just makes me wonder.
Maybe the next time I come across someone like that Ill ask them why theyre not totally happy.
Having said all that, I am a little bit shy or reserved in person (though I do usually ask how their day is) and maybe theyre just responding to my expression. Maybe I look high-and-mighty! *horrified gasp* I hope not, I dont feel that way. lol
Anyway. Just a random thought. 😉
