“Hello my friend from another branch.”

This is basically the reason I know I want to work with young people (younger since I of course am ancient at 23):

I was working at my new place of employ when a girl came up to me at the circulation desk. I didn’t recognize her right away.

Then she said those magic words: “Hello my friend from another branch.” (!!!!!)

Having had time to think about it, this is a girl I have discussed books with when she checks out because she has excellent taste and borrows books like Ella Enchanted which I love.

I’m still not clear why she was at my new place of employ instead of at MU–her local branch. But she was there and she recognized me. And she said hi. And she called me a friend. And that was enough to end my epic fail week on an up note.
