I have one: Are you allowed to read for pleasure when you are working? If so, I need to become a librarian.
Some library authorities allow you to do so if you're on duty at a desk and have finished shelving etc. Unfortunately, the ones I work for don't. :(
But I am allowed to take out a *massive* amount of books, and I get the new releases pretty quickly. :)
Oh, and FYI, you're not actually allowed to call yourself a librarian unless you have a degree in Library and Information Studies. Otherwise, you're simply a Library Assistant. (I'm a library assistant. :))
"Why isn't Facebook/ Yahoo/ Hotmail etc. working? Their site is down? So, do something about it!" (Yes, I have the phone numbers for Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg in my pocket - I'll get right on that for you.)
As I mentioned in a different thread I too am a library worker (and just like in the UK, here the only people allowed to call themselves librarians are ones with a Library Science degree) and I must say I feel fortunate because I haven't dealt with quite the same amount of silly, ridiculously preposterous questions as my UK counterpart!
About a year ago though I was asked by an awkward man old enough to be my grandpa where the "old copies of Playboy were". After I explained that we did not carry those he apologized, tipped his hat to me (that's right, a goddamned genuine fedora) and departed. Easily the most charming old perv I've ever met.
Sure because assault is totally a reasonable solution to a minor annoyance...
Bumping into someone is assault now? LOL!!! Thanks for making my day, man. You are hilarious.
"Hard enough to knock the phone from her hand" implies a level of violence necessary to carry out the act. Sorry bub but if I saw this as a witness I'd be approaching the scene to ensure the person bumped into was alright, especially if it was a woman and a man. Call me a white knight if you like, I don't care.
