Being unable to recognize that you're referring to yourself

Sunday afternoon, OED man approached the reference desk and began asking my co-worker to look up words and his new obsession of phrases.

I walked away from the desk to assist a patron in locating a book. Upon my return to the reference desk, my co-worker says to me, "OED said, if we created a new department, just for the crazy people, there wouldn't be any patrons in our department." I asked my co-worker, "Is he including himself in the proposed new department?"

That's funny, I thought your department already was for all the crazy patrons. LOL

That's pretty much what I think also. They all just seem to exit the elevators on the 3rd floor.

Just be happy no one can holiday shop @ the library.

I have done holiday retail and I am so glad that I'm not anymore.
