I had the following extremely frustrating conversation while at a workshop last weekend:

Other (non librarian) person: so, do you ever catalogue film [on reels]?

Me: no, not usually. Although I think I do have one sitting in my cupboard.

Other: oh, what is it?

Me: I don’t know, I haven’t looked at it yet.

Other: is it 16mm?

Me: I don’t know, I haven’t looked at it yet.

Other: is it celluloid?

Me: I don’t know, I haven’t looked at it yet.

Other: what’s it about?

Me (calmly): I don’t know, I haven’t looked at it yet.

Other: did you smell it? If it smells of vinegar then it’s…

Me (still calmly): I really and honestly don’t know. I haven’t looked at it yet.

I can’t remember how I got out of the hell of that looped conversation. I tried to give this other person the benefit of the doubt,  but when I (or really, any librarian) say I DON’T KNOW then I really. truely. honestly. and completely. do. not. know.
So quit freakin’ asking me about it. I’m an ‘information professional’ and trust me, if I had the slightest tidbit of information I’d tell you.
