A polite librarian is a good librarian.
At a particular branch in my city, it was the LA's job to make tea and coffee for breaks. The head librarian would ring a bell a certain number of times to let the lowly LA know that he/she should be putting the water on to boil and starting the coffee maker. Apparently the librarians were too busy to make their own coffee. Since I don't drink coffee and had no idea how to make a "good" pot, after one attempt I was informed I should just make tea. Now as a librarian I make a point of avoiding that branch because I hate the bell.
That's Draconian!I make lousy tea or coffee ... my friends know to make their own when they come visit. [snicker snicker!]
I work as a substitute librarian for the local city branches-- some of the fancier ones have Keurig coffee makers :)
