bridesmaid reception

Accidental volunteer library staff

A lady was having hassle with binding her MSc and the library assistant couldnt work out how to open the binder.  As I used to do these at Kall Kwik I know how to do them and theyre really not hard, so after watching them struggle for a moment I went over and helped and opened up the binder in 2 seconds.  Not a problem.  Both people were thankful.  The lady told me not to run off and I said Id be in here for the next 20mins at this pc (a couple of metres away from where she is).  She just called me over to ask how to close up the binder which was fine and the first binding was finished, not a problem.  Then some foreign guy came up to us and wanted some help.  We were like 'we're not library staff but we could possibly help'.  Anyway, he wanted to know what his username and password was to get onto the computers, and cause he was a new student, enrolled yesterday, he didnt know.  Luckily I know how to work out your username and password and showed him how you do it.  Then I went back to my pc and the guy next to me asked me for help with logging onto the pc, he'd put in too many numbers for his username - its the campus number without the last 3 digits. Then just as Id sorted that another foreign girl came up to me and asked me the same thing!!

Seriously, the library should be paying me hehehe
