To the left, to the left please

Ususally it's the librarian who sits on the left side of the reference who receives the most questions from patrons. THAT IS NOT THE CASE whenever I am at there. I get all of the walk-ups. There was a line in front of me and the lines starts..................you guessed it, to the left.

My revenge tactic for my co-workers.................I stopped answering the telephone reference questions. Since most of these folks will let me answer a line of questions, while they are doing whatever it is they do, I stopped answering the telephone. If I mention the line, I hear, "Oh, I didn't realize there was a line." Well if you looked up from the computer, your book, magazine, whatever, you might see the line!
