Summary: A librarian's lot is not a happy one.
Maddening really. To be stuck in this provincial backwater of the Colonies. Of all the ludicrous places for a Hellmouth to emerge and a Slayer to reside. Then the final indignity. His “cover” story. The lowly librarian; getting significantly less respect than the school nurse, who at least has the power to get the little monsters out of their classes for a few periods.
Why couldn’t it be the Royal Library of Alexandria? Bringing scrolls to scholars and royalty, instead of helping another generation of morons escape with a barely earned diploma.
Sometimes he thinks Buffy has the easy job.
