Discussion #9: Kinds of Librarians

So, recently, I've been talking about our school's librarian in a very bitter manner, and may he never ever see this post. LOL. I just wanted to talk about the kinds of librarians that I meet. Even though the general stereotype is something like this:


That's just the major stereotype, as if all old ladies like to sit in libraries and do nothing but smell dusty books and tell people to shut their cakeholes.

Anyways, I'll just start out by describing our school's librarian.

He's scary. So, when your voice rises above a little hiss of a whisper, he comes over to you and tells you to shut up in his own way. It's not whispering if I can hear you all the way over there. Well, screw him. It's not my fault I whisper loud. I really do. I'm a loud person.. So when we all sit down, all he does is stare (glare) at us with those creepy eyes that just want to pierce your soul and kill your being! That's seriously ALL he does for the whole entire 30 minutes of lunch. I just hate him so much oh my gosh. Maybe I'm being a little immature about this whole thing, but come on! WORST. LIBRARIAN. EVER.

So, just a few days ago, I went and sat down between two aisles to avoid his gaze, and it was actually nice in there. Ugh.

So after he told me to shut up for the billionth time, I told myself that I would be quiet. So I just move to a different table-- however, my whole group follows me, so I move to another table, and they still follow me. So I move to another table and stay there all alone. So my friends are VERY, VERY loud, perhaps even louder than me, so they just start whispering like there's no tomorrow and a few seconds later, they don't even bother to whisper. They just start talking. What pissed me off is that the librarian LET them talk, and they're so much louder than I ever was! So then, when they got a little louder, he just walks over to them and tells them, "I'll take it away if you guys can't be quiet."

Come ON. That's WAY nicer than "It's not whispering if I can hear you all the way over there."

I HATE HIS GUTS I JUST WANT TO SMASH HIS FACE UGH WHAT KIND OF LIBRARIAN IS HE

Well, I kind of just realized why I made this post in the first place. It's not to rant about our school's librarian, or to tell stories of my personal life, which I just did.. but I want to talk about the types of librarians that I've encountered.

- The ones that say nothing all day but BE QUIET! (Ahem)
- The ones that help you when you need assistance in finding books
- The librarians that have read everything and are very attentive and nice
- The ones that do nothing but sit there and do who-knows-what on the computer

I think that if a librarian is not going to be nice and attentive and helpful, they might as well not be a librarian at all. A library is supposed to be a nice environment. I get it, you have to be quiet, but really, it's not a librarian's job to tell everyone to shut the hell up. It's annoying. So annoying that I had to make a post about it.

I mean, I have no experience, but since I'm a library volunteer, I think that I know the vague idea of what a librarian should be like.

It's just.. UGH HE IRRITATES ME 

I hope that many of you have found this post amusing.. because I think I've ranted enough about this topic...

Happy reading, guys!
