Apprehended

This afternoon, Barney and Seamus spotted the man who peed in the stairwell a couple of weeks ago and confronted him. Not only did he deny everything despite video evidence--he was wearing the same outfit as in the security footage. The most plausible explanation was that he was blackout drunk when he did the deed and genuinely doesn't remember.


Fortunately (for us), you can still be banned from library premises for things you were too drunk to remember doing.

  1. yeah, the world would be a terrible place if people got a free pass for sh*t they did when they were drunk

    1. Good question! Generally we don't, since we're a big library and we have a lot of part-time staff. It's hard to spot people when they sneak back in, although we have a couple of people who have the eye. I'm not one of them, but I think if a patron came back in the same outfit they were wearing in their ban photo, I'd have maybe a 50/50 chance of spotting them.

      Tell me more about your efforts with banned patrons!

    2. nothing special, just high school kids who mostly get kicked out for being loud and disruptive but they don't think we mean it or something? and we don't always see them until they're being disruptve again
