Mission Statement

I serve them

This is one man's record of his daily encounters with the most annoying representatives of the human race.

As a librarian working in a large urban library, I have daily encounters with panhandlers, bums, ex-offenders, out-of-control school kids, and the mentally disturbed/challenged. Something about libraries tends to attract society's eccentrics. Maybe it's just that the poeple who tend to "live" at the library day-after-day tend to be people who have been kicked out of every other institution - be it the workplace, school, correction facilities, mental institutions, rehab centers, shelters and halfway houses, or commercial businesses that discourage loitering.

This blog represents a litany of painful encounters.
