Waiting for Relief - It's a common bad habit among borrow professionals to truncate and otherwise provide brief answers to patron questions when it's past time to be relieved from their shift. This is only natural if one has spent the past hour or two bouncing pinball like from checkout to catching line 2 before it rings 9 times to helping a patron discover the reason for their blank copies (face down, not up, sir) to calling the police on a patron eating magazine pages cookie-monster-style. This end-off-shift state of mind can produce unsuitable answers to reference questions.
Q: Could you suggest a few kids books that have incontinence as a central theme?
A: Oh, they're just all mixed in.

Q: How can I find articles about that man who only eats foods that start with "M"?
A: Just look over there in the periodicals.

Q: Where's my mommy?
A: She's around here someplace, I'm sure.
