When I started this blog back in January, I thought ‘Webbed Wednesday’ would make for a good theme – introducing readers to a new website, blog or techy thing each week. Readers, it’s not working for me. I can’t imagine coming up with 52 new websites, blog posts or techy things over the course of this next year.
Wednesdays will now be for one-offs, i.e. random topics and thoughts.
Today’s topic is work-related. Some of you know that I work in a public library. Yesterday, toward the end of my shift, one of our more needy computer users approached the desk with this invitation: “If you have the time, inclination, and patience, I have a few questions. You’ll need to come to the computer I’m using.”
Hmmm. Time, check. Patience, check. Inclination? Not so much.
Yes, I walked over and helped him with his tech issues. It’s my job; it’s what they pay me for. And let's not forget my verse for the year.
But really, people should be careful how they phrase their requests for help :)
