Librarians Are Mocking All The People Who Annoy Them At Work

The library feels like a warm, welcoming place where you go to be gently shushed and read in a place that smells like mildew. But behind the scenes, librarians are just as annoyed by customers as any other retailer. Perhaps more.

Twitter user @metafrantic tweeted a photo from a library of a display of red books with a banner that pokes fun at people’s habit of asking a librarian to help them find a book based on its color.

This is apparently a common library troll:

A phenomenon so widely known, there are comic strips about it.

Other librarians and book store folk chimed in to say what bugs THEM about all the people coming in for help:

At least one person thought that color coding kinda made some sort of sense…

But most are like, “Nah.”

But my favorite is this comment that indicates not only do people ask for books by color, but they mostly seem to ask for red. 

Do they think that makes the book more attractive?

People Are Mocking Trump For Seemingly Forgetting The National Anthem

In Trump’s view, the peaceful protest is disrespectful to our very nation, rather than part of a long history of trying to change the country for the better through demonstration:

The Daily Dotreports that Trump made a big stink about his own love of flag and country right before going to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta to kick off the national championship game between the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama.

But when it came time to actually sing the anthem, things didn’t go so hot.

It kind of seems like Trump doesn’t actually know the song?

Maybe he just doesn’t know where he is, or he’s thinking about the two scoops of ice cream waiting for him at home in front of the TV and the warm blare of Fox News.

Maybe he was disoriented because he was reportedly booed as he entered the arena. At certain points, he gave up on singing entirely:

People couldn’t help but point out the hypocrisy of the president seemingly not even bothering to prepare for this public event where he would surely be scrutinized:

The National Anthem is a long and complicated song, and most people don’t know the whole thing by heart. But when you’re a nationalistic president who is constantly berating people about their levels of patriotism, people certainly expect you to show up prepared.
