Recently, my cool young female supervisor was replaced with an equally cool young male from another branch. He already knew a lot about me before he started because I used to work with one of his coworkers. She was one of the YS librarians at our old branch and I always called her "Friend." She was one of the first Info people I befriended at that branch. I also get along really well with my current branch's YS librarian and she's older than my parents and we really don't have much in common. Now that I think about it, I really get along well with YS librarians in general, even the YS Librarian that doesn't play nicely with other librarians. I think I have a thing for YS librarians, holy crap, this is some Freudian type ish right here... Is this why I got my MLIS??
|The People's Cubicle|
Okay, to be honest, I really kept it up because I knew it bugged the oppressive management there. They love to micromanage every single aspect of the branch, even the way your cubicle is. They hate when your desk has "clutter" aka anything that isn't: a keyboard, monitor, mouse, barcode scanner, stapler, tape, writing utensils, pad of paper, and Post-It notes. I think all of my coworkers contributed to my bookmark collection as their way of "sticking it to the man." A few have told me, "I can't believe they didn't tell you to take it down." They couldn't because I had the people behind me and it would have just made everyone hate them just a little bit more.
