I’m a hero!
LOTS going on–all the end-of-school good stuff: Field Days, Talent Shows, Ice Cream Socials, Parties, and last-minute hurrahs. We’ve been busy and will be busy right up until the very end, the last day of school, June 3rd. YIKES! That’s next week!
Yesterday I was working in the school library, waiting for the cash drawer and scanner to be delivered so we could open the last Scholastic book fair of the year, killing time labeling books. The PTA Liasion to the school library sat down next to me about thirty minutes into my labeling. Basically we have to search a database for each book the library has and label it with all pertinent information. I told her that I’d found that searching by ISBN numbers typically worked best.
After about ten minutes of labeling she looked over at me and saw I was using the number keypad to enter ISBN’s, and she commented that she wished the keypad on her computer worked–that would make things much easier. She then commented that the keypad didn’t work on her home computer either and she didn’t know why they bothered to add that feature when it didn’t work. I leaned over, pressed her ‘Num Lock’ key and said, “Try it now.” She was downright thrilled. Made me feel a little like a superhero.
And then I watched this and considered getting up on the bathroom counter….
