Red face Should've done this first!

Hi everyone!

My apologies for posting for a few days and not coming here first.

I work in a large, statewide library system as the Circulation Staff Supervisor. Most of my previous jobs were in retail (ASM of a bookstore, manager of a small pet store, Head Cashier at a toy store, and associate at a music store). My first job was as a typesetter/office manager of a small type shop, so I've experienced all kinds of SCs.

I've lurked here for years, and I want to thank everyone who's posted their stories, because they ALWAYS make me feel better after a sucky day at work. You guys rock!

Hey, Ill_Used_Heroine.
Sorry I am so late in saying to CS.

Excellent participation in the forums.
So glad you've joined us.

Hi! I've been reading your stories for a while now and I kept telling myself I should come over here and check if you did a "hello" message...so here I am...Hello!

Thanks, both of you! I was beginning to get a complex ... that's why it says "Invisible Library Clerk" under my user ID. Actually, I was going to change it to "Unofficial Thread Killer," but I've been online long enough (17+ years) to know it takes time to get accepted by board regulars.

Aw, you're not invisible. Now I feel bad
(that's OK, I was anxiously checking my newbie message when I first signed up and was so relieved to see that Ree had responded...and the first time someone quoted me...well, that made me inordinately happy )

I usually come say hi to new people on the weekends, but I haven't been over here in a couple weeks, at least; I was away this past weekend and spending the last couple weekends getting stuff ready and whatnot...

I know how hard it is to break in on a message board, too, and that's why I try to get in and say hello to the new people.

I feel so bad when I fall behind, because I sometimes come in and see people who had made their intro post, and there are no replies, and when I search, they don't have any posts, or very few, and I can't help but feel that they weren't made to feel welcome.

I was so excited when I saw that BookstoreEscapee had my back.
I can always count on her if I get preoccupied and don't get in here, even if she also gets busy with life, I know she'll be here eventually. (Usually before I do.)
