She works at my school too!

I refer to her as the fun vacuum. She is an equal opportunity offender for the most. She has a few "pets" that seem to do no wrong BUT she occasionally offends them too. It got so bad back this...

I had a few as well

I would simply tell them you love their mystery/horror/scifi genre they have been writing for, but the library is a little shy on drama/action/comedy. Challenge the students to no spells and NO...
