Pet Peeves

One of my biggest daily annoyances is when someone calls me on the phone, asks to renew thier books, and when I ask for their library card number they reply:

"The number on the back?"

No, the number on the FRONT! THERE IS NO NUMBER ON THE FRONT! The card is only a 2 inch x 3 inch piece of plastic! How many places are there to hide a "secret number"?

you are just too funny! I'm a librarian too and I can think of quite a few lines that I would love to say out loud but can't. Keep it up!

My other favorite is when you ask for their card number and they say, "oh, just a minute," and then have to put the phone down to go find it. You'd think, you'd think, that since they are calling the library, they would have already gotten their card out.
