Out in the scullery

Kevin and Alwyn have gone back to the old Roadkill Library and spent an age hunting down "somebody's lunch" but could only find a butty box with six grapes in it.

It turns out that that is the lunch.

"Oh good! Thank you, I'm on a diet," says the lucky recipient.

It would have been cheaper for the council to buy her some new grapes.

Does the council make you do these tasks to stop you spending all your time reading the books? A little learning is a dangerous thing, so they say, and maybe they are worried they'd never get the genie back in the bottle if people (including librarians) actually starting learning stuff.

No, this is what passes for management by librarians.

No other part of the council would countenance this sort of nonsense. Well, perhaps Social Services but they're strange in so very many ways anyway.

English public librarians are dead set on stopping people learning things. Especially public library staff.

Cow was once given a "disciplinary write-up" for reading at the reference desk. And cautioned never to do it again.

Those who get into library work because they like books and reading are in for a rude awakening.
