Have you met this guy?
We went to the library Friday afternoon, arrived at 5:05. The parking lot was deserted, the lights were off.
Thing One and I were disappointed at these obvious signs that the library was already closed. We could return the books that were due but our fresh stack of reading material was going to have to wait. I went to deposit our books in the afterhour drop when a man came screeching to a halt in the handicap parking spot and sprinted past me, running for the door. He tried the door, which was locked. I started putting books in the drop slot. He cupped his hands to glass, verified the building was empty, read the library hours placard aloud, cussed, then tried the doors AGAIN. Harder. Repeatedly.
Hello, dimwit! What are you gonna do, break into the public library?? What is that about?
I wish this was an isolated incident, but of course it is not. I am sure you have met this man or one of the interchangeable and ubiquitous members of his secret society of annoying stupid people.
Perhaps, if you are very brave, you will admit to having once engaged in their obscene rituals (for scientific or research purposes only, I am sure).
Have a story?
Come on, share it with us!
Mondays always feel better once you've made sport for your neighbor, and laughed at them in your turn.
