Miss Information is annoyed by timing

Yesterday the library hosted a big meeting and Miss Information got to see her friends from the other library--you know, the one where two different security guards were beaten up by customers? Oh, the memories.

Miss Information took the opportunity to rave about her new branch--really nice customers, no problems at the computers, no fistfights, etc.

Later that night as they were putting on their coats to go home, one of her co-workers shared a story about his shift. He was working at the computer desk and one of the customers approached him as the library was closing. The patron asked for the names of the other people who had been in the computer centre. The library doesn't keep a record of that information, however. The customer said that was unfortunate because he had been headbutted by another computer user earlier and the police needed the information.

So, perhaps the nice library isn't quite as nice as Miss Information had suspected. On the other hand, though, the entire assault took place relatively peacefully. No one reported it to staff or security even though they were nearby.

Apparently the man called the police, but was too civilized to disturb the staff, so Miss Information was right. This is the best library ever.

We had two county police officers at my location the other week, responding to a call placed by staff (because of threatening patron behavior). A patron came up to one officer and told him he was too loud.
