Problem

Today a branch had to ask a problem patron to leave because of his fragrance and the fact that he wet his pants. He demanded to see the policy in writing, so the liberrian showed him the binder. But he wanted it in Spanish, so the liberrian found a bilingual colleague. The patron yelled-- this guy is Mexican, I want someone white, and then demanded that he read the policy in German.

That totally made me laugh. I love it.

Apparently the problem was something more than wet pants as I heard him called "Mr. Poopy Pants" today. How sad.

Are you *positive* we don't work at the same library?? My coworker told me yesterday that she had to ask a man to leave b/c he smelled like poop. Then they had to remove the chair he had been sitting in b/c it reeked.
