Things I noticed while working at my college library

I don't know if these facts are true elsewhere, but I have noted them at the library here on campus. More are likely to come later, but in four months, here are a few observations:
1. Employees who are not on circulation talk to themselves fairly regularly. Out loud. Even when there are other people around.
2. Those same employees hold telephone conversations about things that are totally unrelated to work, almost so often that I have yet to figure out what they do at the library.
Slightly unrelated, but:
3. If my boss leaves early and asks me to answer her phone if it rings, it inevitably rings at least once.

That's all for now.

I like voice mail myself. But I do agree about those annoying conversations totally unrelated to work, both on the phone and aloud. Does this mean we can generalize that all libraries are alike? Both college and public? Or that all library employees are alike? That scares me more (being that I am a library employee).
