I will now make myself feel better instead of angry by posting two compliments I received today at work:
"Thank you so much. What would the world do without librarians?!"
"You are so good. So helpful. We need you in doctors' offices, too."
Is it OK for me to ask for some We love you and We need you and We recognize that you do more than "just put away books" and that we think you are of worth comments?
