Poop, Sharing a

Noisily pooping in a stall next door to a fellow (pooping) librarian colleague is an intimate and sometimes awkward event. As you both emerge from your stalls to wash your hands, break the tension by saying, "Well, that was the most productive I've been all day!"

Doodles, Passing time with

Librarians can pass the soul-crushing hours spent in committee meetings by doodling in the margins of their notepads. If you're looking for inspiration, consider doodling some of the following pictures:
  • a reconfigured floorplan for your office or workspace
  • caricatures of the other people in the room
  • Pac-Man (eating bullet points)
  • flowers and rainbows
  • genitalia
Ask the readers: What do you doodle during library meetings?
