Rumors Of My Demise

“The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated” – Mark Twain

I was startled at the Reference Desk recently when a coworker remarked, “I saw your obituary on the Internet.” After my jaw hit the floor she tried explaining what she meant. She had noticed the new obituary lookup service advertised on our library’s website – a service provided by someone else not myself.

It's good to know that sometimes it’s not the hearing loss that’s to blame for miscommunication.
