I wish I’d known that not only was calling the police and/or the ambulance
not the end of the world, but to be expected now and again.

*Subject:* [MELIBS-L] What do you wish you had known when you started
working in libraries?

Hi all! I am in my last semester of graduate school at Simmons, and the I
am currently working on my final project: creating a handbook for new
library employees with a focus on practical help (ie: how to deal with an
irate patron, something they don't tend to teach you in library school...).
I am hoping you will share some of your experiences with me. Full credit
and acknowledgement in the final product will be given to anyone who
helps. The one question that I would love answered is:

*What do you wish you had known when you started working in libraries?*

Any and all answers, anecdotes, and tall tales appreciated. If you have any
further questions, I'd be happy to answer them as well. Please reply
