Every once in a while there’s an article or cartoon in the paper that has special appeal to readers; here’s one from The New York Times “Metropolitan Diary” column of July 6, 2009. Submitted by John Wasley:
Recently, I was at the Brooklyn Public Library returning books. Suddenly, the young woman checking in the borrowed texts let out a piercingly loud sneeze. Her colleagues and I turned, startled by the shrill sound of it. Finally I said, “Bless you.”
And the library worker replied, “I think I am allergic to these dusty old things, and that’s why I never read books, ever!”
Seems like the career counselor steered her in the wrong direction! Can you think of other employment mismatches?
