Bitchy Patrons...

I'm working a split shift today. I already work 9:00am - 12:00pm and I have to go back later to work from 5:00pm - 9:00pm. Fun, I know...

Working this split has provided me with a work related bitch post and it goes as follows... Earlier as I was getting ready to leave work there was a woman standing at the reference desk, so I asked her if she needed any help even though I had all of my stuff in my hands. She said that she needed help finding books for her son in college and she shows me the list. It was a list that said crap like "find a Caldecott winner" or "find a picture book for children in 3rd to 6th grade." I looked at this lady and I was like "Your son should have done the research ahead of time because you handing me this list is asking me to do his homework..." That is when she got bitchy and I refused to help her -- I pawned her off to my coworker and left because I knew I was gonna get into a fight with her.

I need the World to know that I don't do people's homework. If you don't come into the library with some of the research done I am not doing anything for you. Teachers actually do the same thing, they come in saying they need to do a lesson on X, Y & Z but have nothing done already or any clue about what they want. It is so annoying and frustrating, and it is the exact reason that I refuse to work as a School Media Specialist even though that is what I went to school for.
