I've said it before, I will say it again: this place is two melted clocks and one cattle skull short of a Dali painting.
I have got to cross stitch this on a pillow or something! I can't stop laughing!
That reminds me of a sign that used to hang in the library staff room.
'the only difference between this place and the Titanic is that they had a band'.
Seriously, Yarnspinner's ongoing saga of Stonecold may seem OTT but I believe every word of it. I've worked with a boss who was a mini-version of Stonecold. Every decision seemed to be made via dart board or dreams. Major procedures would change between lunch and closing time. Woe betide anyone who didn't jump on the bandwagon in time.
With a boss like Stonecold there's very little you can do. Going to the union may only make things worse. The Library Board may well be aware that time, talent and most important, money, is being wasted but they lauded Stonecold as an 'Agent of change'. It all sounded innovative and positive on paper but, not knowing much about how libraries work or the population to be served, the Board got itself in so deep that there's no way out without major embarrassment all around.
The idea of the hand-made puppet library is so insane that even this Library Board must realize that Stonecold is delusional, if they have the facts.
Getting them the facts means that the entire staff must work together. Even then, success is iffy but it's worth a try.
