Notice: This Library is Not a Drive-Thru

Finals week tends to take its toll on Willis. But this is getting ridiculous.

Security informed me that twice they've had to tell students that no, you can't order a pizza and bring it into the library. Domino's does not deliver to this address.

Bag of Whataburger trash on a shelf in the abstracts & indexes section. Does that bag have a call number? No? Then it doesn't go on that shelf.

Remains of a Chick-Fil-A sandwhich beside a computer in the reference section. Greasy fingers on a publicly-used keyboard--that thought doesn't make your stomach churn, does it?

Oh, and our wastebasket? It's not a spitoon. Really.

kristen would like to go on record as saying that she disposed of remains of the Chik-Fil-A sandwich.

As for the public keyboards--get out your hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol concentration.

And don't look at the keyboards too closely.

Yes, Kristen did. And my thanks for that.

I took care of the Whataburger bag, although I wish I'd gotten a photo as evidence first. I could've Photoshop-ed in a call number. :)

The only reason that Domino's doesn't deliver is that no one knows our street address!

and yeah, we should probably issue latex globes to anyone who works a service desk...the lan folks don't seem to get the nastyness of the public keyboards - and they don't have those sex offender notes to worry about!

Maybe we should issue standard utility belts, and have one pouch for latex gloves. Hey, it follows the whole Batgirl's-a-librarian theme, right?

I am just geeky enough to carry this plan out. Give me time. :)
