I Am A Little Confuse

Oh Lordy. I am at the library - sadly, not the one I took that photo of the other day. I have spent the last half an hour trying to print two measly little pieces of paper. After being shown to the wrong computer, and then given the wrong instructions I finally actually managed to open the goddamn file. Then, of course there were "insufficient funds" on the plastic card that I had just had to buy and while I was finding out why that was someone jumped in front of me in the queue to use the printer. Because, naturally enough, the library has a fabulous hi-tech system where there are 3 different types of computers (some just internet, some word processing etc) in 3 different locations. There is another location in the library where the print station and printer is and two locations where you can put money on your card. I was a Little Confuse*. By the time I sorted out the problem and got back to the Print Station someone had snuck in front of me. Of course, it was a woman who had less of a clue than me being helped by a man who had a clue level somewhere between hers and mine. And she had to print $10 worth of stuff. So here I am with my bits of paper. The only upside is that in all of the confusion they didn't charge me the $3 I was supposed to pay to use the (second) computer.

Time: Library =1, Zosia =0
Money: Library =0, Zosia =1
On the Spot Made Up Cocktail Recipes: Library =0, Zosia =1

That means I win!

So, all in all, a the day was something of a success. Well done, Zosia.

If only every annoying situation could generate a fabulous cocktail recipe, the world would be a drunker place.

I know. Deep.

Thanks NG.

Well D, now you know how I like to spend my time in libraries: drunk, debauched, and didactic.
