Andrea dreaded her job at the local public school where she worked as a librarian. She was the only librarian there so her job was very lonely. She was hardly around coworkers and none of the students ever talked to her. She felt underappreciated and useless. Little did she know it would only take one comment to change that.
One day while she was walking in the cafeteria, Andrea heard one of her coworkers say to a new staff member that she was training, “Don’t ostracize librarians; they are like the bees, once they’re gone we have nothing”. Andrea had no idea how much her coworkers actually appreciated her.
