(It’s finals time. There’s a sign in the library reading “NO EXCESSIVE NOISE OR PHONE USE – POLICY STRICTLY ENFORCED.” A student comes in talking on her phone.)

Student: “…but that’s not ’til Tuesday so I’m like, f**** that, I’m just going to—OWWW!”

Head Librarian: “And there’s more where that came from if you can’t be quiet, missy!”

(I go up to check out a book and see a giant box of rubber bands behind the desk.)

Me: “Are you… are you shooting those at students?”

Head Librarian: “Yep! I’ve been practicing in my spare time. [Other librarian] and I are keeping score.”
