Stealing our salary

"When I was a little girl I thought the librarian in our public library just about stole her salary. I couldn't imagine getting paid for sitting around in a quiet environment, reading books and occasionally answering a few whispered questions - what a deal! (...) I envied the librarian's days spent in that enchanted place. I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. Who knew that things would be so different when I began working in a library?"
