In one of my conversations with R.K. at our place of work, he brought up some of his favorite book titles. After laughing until my stomach hurt, I thought it would work well to try and interpret them as cartoons. There are a couple more titles he had which didn't make it into this post, but it may become a continuing series. How to build a T-Rex skeleton out of chicken bones??? Yes, these books really do exist.

I'm not even sure you can sing along with this. I've been having trouble coming up with new ideas lately, so out of desperation I decided on a musical. Strange...

Originally I heard this story from a couple of co-workers and got a good chuckle out of it...the randomness of the situation and the way they impersonated the patron made me think it would work well to post as a blog. But translating it into cartoon form has proven to be exceedingly difficult. Not sure if I did it justice, but it was worth a try.

The idea for this cartoon came about while I was talking with a co-worker who happens to work at another branch in a busy neighborhood. He was describing the high volume of patron traffic in comparison to the small sized building that the library is housed in and how it sometimes felt like he was working at a fast food restaurant.

This particular strip is a bit heavy on the narrative, or maybe too wordy, but I felt it was important to give some background information on what really happened. And silhouettes have been changed to protect the identity of the person involved. More true stories are on the way, so check back soon...

A flashback to my days working at call centers and temp jobs in customer service. What a nightmare.

I wasn't trying to be particularly morbid or negative with this cartoon...just getting it out of my system. Being a library page isn't all that bad.

I'd like to point out that this actually hasn't happened to me, but it's only a matter of time. Thanks again to everyone for all the great comments with insights and stories from other libraries.
Have a great 2007!
