So I haven't written about work in a long time and that's because things were just not pleasant here for a good while. But since things have calmed down a bit I feel like it's a good time to catch everyone one up on whats been going on at the library.
Well first off, "Amy" and "Marie" both quit... "Amy" quit back in February after a freak hot coffee incident (She some how spilled a less than half empty cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee on her leg and ended up with second/third degree burns -- Yeah, we still don't understand the whole thing) in conjunction with a bunch of other personal and work related issues that came to a head. While "Marie" quit last week because she got more days at her other job and ultimately because she hated our Department Head and Director with a fiery passion, that in her case I can't really blame her for.
Speaking of our Director, he announced last month that he was retiring come October after almost forty years of being Director of this library. This has some of the staff freaking out (Including myself a bit) because the devil you know is better than the devil you don't know...
"Julia" had surgery and was out for over a month to the joy of my department. But she came back last week and has been just as useless as ever.
Since "Amy" and "Marie" quit they've begun the process of interviewing potential librarians and librarian assistants (Mainly because we're tired of being short staffed and having to do a crap ton of extra work). Unfortunately all of the individuals that they've interviewed so far have "Not been fits for our department." So we'll just have to wait and see what happens on that front.
So yeah, a lot of staffing changes are about to occur and hopefully they don't hire more crazy people but God knows they will... I'll keep you up to date on what's going on and I promise I wont make you wait months in between my library tales in the future.
