Games as stress relievers

   0
For about six months a couple of years back, I worked at Los Angeles International Airport as a taxi starter. A taxi starter's job consists of opening cab doors, loading luggage, and making sure that the cab is an official one, thereby preventing cabs from ripping people off. It is a simple job in principle. However, the customer service component is a real bitch, as people who have just gotten off an eight hour flight and all they want to do is go home, must deal with me as I wave a taxi cab over to them. The problem is that when a flight of 300 people want to take cabs home, and there are only five cabs in the queue, people can start to get testy.

Here's a quick blurb about myself-

I am a children's librarian living in Los Angeles.

I like reading, writing, and watching tv.

I hate people who talk down to others. I like talking down to people who talk down to others to prove a point.

I spend way too much on video games, action figures, comics, and beer.

I plan on writing blog entries as soon as I am done with this whole lazy thing, which I enjoy.
