mean people


Here's a piece of library entertainment for you. A patron, who published her 'phobic-woes' throughout the city, wrote this awfully mean letter in response to homeless people who frequent the library consistently.

Library Manager: Today I found several of these “fliers” posted on mailboxes, newsstands, etc., on Third Street – not on our building, but just to the east. The ever-so-eloquently-conveyed sentiments seem to be in line with those recently expressed by a concerned patron, J.S. This is just a suspicion; I have no proof. But for those of you who know her, please keep an eye on her and remain alert.

When will selfish people like this one realize the sun is for everyone, the sky belongs to all, the library is a public service facility opened to everyone---not just for snobs like this person. Luckily, we were informed to watch out for her to make sure *she* doesn't try something stupid. Can you believe it? Where do people get these kinds of nerves? I'm curious to learn how she would determine who's homeless and who's not. Ug! There's just so many things wrong with this request.

The author of this has I think some sanity issues of ther own.

Dickens said "Oh, to hear the insect on the leaf pronouncing on his humble brother in the dust."

But there is fear underneath it.

This makes me shake my head. The fact that it was written anonymously (anony - MOUSE - ly)is the key.

Out her on the note and she will shut the f ***k up. A nice photo of her over a copy of the note should do it.
