What's that smell?????

Let me start by saying that I have a serious sinus headache today. I probably should have stayed at home, but I just couldn't do it.

Everything was fine the first hour. Halfway into the second hour, it began to smell like the office had turned into a sewage plant. The engineers had the nerve to proclaim that it's not bad. My boss sent out an e-mail and it has been discovered that the smell is in the work area on three out of six floors.

So the smell in the back was messing with my sinuses. I get on the floor and two teenage girls sit near the reference desk and proceed to talk and giggle loudly during my first hour on the desk. For the first half hour, I tried to suck it up. I was thinking that the noise level seemed louder to me because of the headache. Finally, I had to say something to them. To my surprise, all of the adults looked at me with relief on their faces.

Did they figure out what the smell was?

They seem to have turned on the ventilation to the public restrooms and it is going into the air vents for the staff areas. The weekend staff (I am told) seems to get this step confused often.

You are a fool for that!

I quit being a children's librarian because people get offended when you say something to their bad children. I refussed to suffer because they didn't want to be bothered at home.
