Keyword: bacon

March 25, 2008

One of the things they don’t teach you in library school is that the reference desk has tax season. I can’t tell you the number of circular conversations I’ve had with patrons about what I can and cannot tell them about their taxes – essentially, we can only provide the forms, but even that isn’t as straightforward as it sounds, because not everyone knows what forms they need, or how to ask for the form they need. I anticipate the number of anxious and angry patrons will only increase as the deadline approaches. Thankfully, there’s an H&R Block right up the street.

And just a teeny Today I Have:

  • ordered a bacon cookbook
  • had a patron tell me he invented the idea of “pay it forward”
  • had several people shout at me re: see above
  • joined a social networking site for knitters and crocheters
  • been thankful many times over that I’ve already done my taxes
