Toner Deaf

I love this message we got from our librarian. Her e-mail said:

To those who have permission to print to the library printer, there’s no toner. To those who ignore the fact you don’t have permission to print to the library printer, I don’t care what you do. There’s no toner. Print your Weight Watchers calendars somewhere else.

There’s a message in there, besides the obvious. I can’t quite put my finger on it, though. It probably has something do with professionalism. Or, it could have something to do with the fact that the role models for students disregarding policy because it does not benefit them is just getting to her.

I guess those two go hand in hand, but I must look on the bright side. Let’s see…oh, here we go: at least the calendars were personal and health-oriented and not, say, sports-betting-related. They’ve probably commandeered a whiteboard in the nutritionist’s office for that.

There I go again. Remember, stay positive.
