Daniel writes "Today a coworker posted some excerpts from Librarian's Guide to Etiquette and I was immediately seized by giggles. In hopes that you will be too, here are a few quotes:
- "If you are a candidate for a librarian position and someone from the search committee asks, "If you were a garden tool, what kind of garden tool would you be? And why?"... it is perfectly acceptable for you get up and walk out of the interview without saying another word."
- "You can never be too careful when you suspect the caller is pranking you at the Reference Desk. It is especially risky to mock the person's voice when responding to a suspected pranker. Don't learn this lesson the hard way."
Congratulations to Sal and J for lightening the moods of librarians everywhere. At least for those of us whose humor trends snarky."
