Sunday afternoon shifts...

I just had a patron come up to me and ask "where is the art section?" ummm...we're a MEDICAL library...

We have also had not one, but TWO patrons yell at us across the library for help. Both times it was for something related to Facebook. Are you kidding me?! I always find it to be the rudest thing ever when someone is too lazy to just walk the 10 feet to the desk & instead they'd rather wave their arms frantically until someone notices them or they just yell over to us & disrupt everyone else in the library who might be trying to do actual work.

Also just had a woman walk in & say she "needs to check out the pocket dictionary". Sorry, but again we're a MEDICAL library so we only have regular sized dictionaries or dictionaries specifically related to pharmaceutical or medical terms. This reminds me of the story someone from an aquaculture library sent in about a patron coming in on several occasions and demanding a copy of the Koran.
