Kids: Don't do drugs. You'll be the target of public ridicule. It's not cool. It's really
not cool. A fried egg has nothing on this. Does anyone else remember that commercial? I think it was in the 80's...
This is your brain. This is your brain on drugs. *CRACK* *SIZZLE*
We have a library patron in (note, I work in a very very
poor area of the barrio, a bad neighborhood) who has had a little too much of ...something.
I had to wake him up, because he passed out at the 15 minute computers.
He then wandered around for a while, and then went behind the circulation desk and sat at a staff computer. It took a couple of minutes to notice, because we were busy with things, and we chased him away.
Other patrons started to notice. There was much giggling.
He asked for the bathroom key. I gave it to him. He tried to get into the janitorial closet. I steered him in the right direction.
It took him a little while to manage the lock. The public and I were placing bets as to whether he'd forget the key inside.
Surprise: He remembered the key. Good thing no one was betting for money.
He tried to get behind the circulation desk again. Staff chased him away.
This is entertaining. He appears to be completely harmless, so we're all just kind of watching him to see what happens next. It's not like we can get security out here any time sooner than the next two hours, anyway.
