So as I’ve said here before, I’ve got this part-time job at a library now. It’s a good job, you know, nice people, low stress, nice environment, etc. etc.
It’s all good, but there’s this woman that is there literally every day that is a little...off. The person that trained me said that this woman is mentally out of alignment (to put it nicely) but she doesn’t really bother anyone, and everyone just laughs off what she says. The first day I worked there she was nice and seemed to be in a good mood; last night, not so much. She came up to the counter, and this is how our interaction went:
Me: Hello. How are you today
Crazy Lady (in a frustrated tone of voice): Fine. Is that the end of the questions?
Me: *checks out DVD and hands it back to her* There you go. Have a good night.
Crazy Lady: I wish you wouldn’t tell me what to do.
Me: Awkward silence
Then she proceeded to have a conversation with the other circulation clerk about the clerks recent hair cut, which boiled down to Crazy Lady telling the other clerk she needed to grow her hair out, that it was too short.
Who would have thought a library would be so interesting?
