Guess who is pregnant? That’s right, it’s Mrs Robinson and she’s pregnant to me!
I love library gossip. Let’s see some of the things I’ve been gossiped about since I started working in libraries.
1. Who I sleep with (men, women, no-one).
2. That I’m a virgin.
3. That I’m a giant ho (same person who thought I was a virgin changed their mind and decided I was a ho).
4. That I’m dating/sleeping with:
a) Monica (Library Tech Extraordinaire)
b) Tracy (bet ya didn’t hear that!)
c) Ruth (80 year old Doveton woman)
d) Perren (a friend from highschool)
e) Paul the shelver
f) Steven the lecturer
g) Suzie (cataloguer at Latrobe Uni)
h) Eda the fashionable librarian
i) Mrs Robinson
Actually, that’s about it. Why do library staff need to know who I’m sleeping with? It’s not any of them! (I have a policy of never dating a co-worker).
Although, finding out that Mrs Robinson is pregnant was new. And if she’s pregnant, I must be the father because we’ve talked on the phone and I called her Honeypie (Lucy, if you’re reading this you’ll know that my swear-jar is empty if I’m honeypie’ing people). Just for everyone else, honeypie is what a former co-worker used to call people who irritated her on the phone.
“Look Honeypie *grinds teeth*, if the power is out then your computer will not work no matter how much you yell at me…no, not even if you plug it into another powerpoint”.
