Librarian Ire

Real life Dilbert example

I just got news that the promotion position I applied for was given to Velma, the student assistant here.
How the hell do you promote a student over a current library worker with more than half the qualifications you asked for? The only thing she has going for her is the fact that she's been here for 8 years. As a student. She's never actually held a real job. So of course they make her a manager. Dilbert in action.
That's ok. I have heard from good authority that all the people working at that place are nuts and wackadoos anyway. With bad fashion sense.
So not only will Velma fit right in she will (hopefully) get a rude awakening about the real world. And most likely fall flat on her face. I can't wait!

Velma alert. She called (my boss gave her the rest of the week off to 'prepare her for her new job')
and asked me what she should buy for her new office. Not plants, pictures, or calendars. Pens, pads, staplers, tape and erasers. Office supplies.
Most places buy enough for the office staff.
See how clueless? She didn't pay attention to what the office manager does.
