Nights and weekends, Working

The next time you get down on librarianship and start thinking, "I went to graduate school so that I could get a job that requires me to work nights and weekends?!" just remember that you could be working in a fast food joint.

Anyway, looks is more important than books. (1,000 points to the librarian who can name the book this quote is from)

or maybe you are working in a fast food joint cause you're overqualified for those "paraprofessional" positions that are replacing librarian positions.

OR you work in a library AND a fast food joint because of pay increase freezes, health care premiums increases, and if you're really lucky and work for a state gov't: FURLOUGHS

Or you could just work for a school library! No nights or weekend hours, summer off, winter and spring breaks...
I'll stop bragging now.

@Librarian at McD's: Or maybe you recently finished your MLIS, and still work one of those paraprofessional jobs because no one will hire you without 3+ years professional experience.

I never thought my MILS would be useful to have to be in the 'noise police' team.
