Anyway, I thought I would share this...which, being a library clerk, I found highly amusing..
Since I work in a library, this just struck a chord. It is almost unbelievable the things that public materials and provided equipment are subjected to. That especially includes ones that people take home--like Library Cards! I think maybe a sticker with these kinds of warnings should be put on each and every one. Just a small number of the most damaging things library cards handed to me have undergone:
- Chewed by a boxer puppy,
- Run over by a truck,
- Used to open a locked front door,
- Subjected to a scissors experiment by a four year old, and...
- Ready for the last? Left on a stove.
These are just the ones that have undergone structual damage. I really do not even want to know about the ones that come caked in dirt, or grease, or other unidentifiable goo... I wonder if people have ever considered why librarians always keep a bottle of hand sanatizer on their desks?
Just a rhetorical question...what are the cards on your keychain and wallet like?
