This was an answer to kalium's question about what work as a librarian is like. It amused me, so I repost here.
Hmm, it can be kind of slow, but it's worth it because you get to feel superior to all those intellectually-challenged idiots out there and laugh at their appalling ignorance help people. Of course, you get to read books as part of your job. Or I do, at least. ^_- You also get to spend other people's money and warp help shape the minds of children. I just wish I could sit around doing nothing more often - too much stuff all the time.
