Spies Not Quite Like Us

In the midst of summer reading season hell, an annual ritual where thousands of students descend upon us like locusts to get the books they’re required to read before the new school year begins, The Secret Agent walks up to the Reference Desk and says, “You have a very nice library here. It’s very spacious,” then immediately walks away as fast as he came.

According to a coworker, The Secret Agent has stopped by the Reference Desk nearly every other day for the last 15 years just to say this.

  1. Clearly the secret agent is a mole waiting for the right response to be activated. Someone on your staff is not on task.

  2. Oh how I wish I could post pictures, or videos of these characters…

  3. Maybe you could hook him up with Space Ace. If you put them in an elevator together the results might be really interesting.

    [Okay, it could be bad, but it is for science damn it.]

  4. “The seagulls pass at midnight.”

  5. Actually, it’s a lot of fun to watch our Irregulars interact Max. Space Ace came in one day over the winter to get on the Internet and he wound up sitting next to Typhoid Mary. She didn’t stop coughing for 3-4 months, so we were thinking that she had TB… Anyway, Space Ace was like, “Are You OK? Do you need some water?” And Mary responded, [cough] “Why don’t you mind your own business.” [cough]

    Psst… Kevin, “Shoot the moon.”

  6. I guess everyone has their purpose in life…

  7. I don’t suppose he’s got books stuffed up that coat?
