Today, I got a job in my university library. My job title is technical services. My actual job is pulling off the book label for the scanner and putting a new one on. For six hours a day. FML

Suck it. You're in Texas, you should be grateful you have an indoor job. When I see those poor bastards working on the roads, or building houses or mowing lawns (and all of us know what the vast majority of them look like), I admire their willingness to work like that and am not all that concerned exactly how they got into this country. When I was in college, I had a job in the library drilling holes through several issues of magazines and journals and binding them together between pieces of cardboard. It would have totally sucked, except the university subscribed to a wide array of **** "for research purposes." jkjkjk!


at least OP's not giving bubble baths to retired folks.

hey guy at least it's temporary(just assuming it's a Uni job to have some extra cash), also it's awesome you can get baked all day and not worry about ******* shut up too badly

I'm sorry. I've seemed to have missed the part where you're happy to have found a job at all, OP.

At least you are not a fudge packer.. that would be akward.

Grow up and stop crying. You have a job don't you? Many people would love to have your job so they can keep food in their families bellies and a roof over their heads. Be thankful for the work.

look at this way.. it's a very important job. without you the library wouldnt function! it's a delicate balance of things that will collapse if you quit.

stop complaining. you have a job AND you don't have to deal with the general public. put your earbuds in and get to work!

you got a job in these horrible economic times and it's at your school so you don't even have to commute! wow your life really sucks!!!

YDI because you peel off stickers and put new ones on for six hours a day.

yeah. really. he should be grateful. I had a really boring job at the library too when I was in college but I appreciated the money I made for it, which wasn't much. but it really helped

So go dig ditches or clean toilets for a living, instead.

I wouldn't last a day doing that! Hope you get good pay!

Makes sense. There is anything technical to service in a library anyway. Just a bunch of books. I guess the joke was one you.

isn't* I bet the guy who hired you was laughing under his breath walking away. Probably went to his buddy and said "Hey guess which position I just hired someone for" "What" "Technical services" "For real? In a library? Who fell for that?"

At my University's library there's computers everywhere and we a have a full tech team there as well.

my university library had all the IT support in it...

You obviously don't know jack about libraries. I'm a library student. The books themselves aren't even half of it.

FYL for never having been in a library to notice the computers.

I did know that they usually have a lab somewhere, or even just a card catalog. I wanted to ignore that for the sake of the joke. Besides they don't do real technical stuff anyway. Maybe help some stupid person who can't use a projector, but generally real tech stuff will be handled by the tech department of the school.

You got a job, it isn't supposed to be fun. Live with it or give it to me. YDI.
