I Never Signed Up For This
Tonight a middle-aged guy needed help rebooting his machine because it froze. PCs freeze all day long so this is no big deal in and of itself, however as I’m waiting for the machine to reboot I notice that the machine froze while displaying search results for “Adult Entertainment Clubs” in the Miami area. He wasn’t actually viewing porn or anything that would raise the “prurient interest” during his stay…
Anyway, I restart the guy’s computer and went back to tend to other business at the Reference Desk and after a few minutes the guy made a call on his cell phone to one of his buddies and from what I could gather he was putting together a smut filled vacation for himself and a few friends. He told the guy, “I’m @ the Library right now doing research.”
As librarians we help many people every day fulfill their various informational needs… While in library school, I never imagined that someday I would be helping some middle-aged guys find lodging and “entertainment” such as this… A pornocation! They want to be in the heart of it all in order to have access to the fake boobies and, from the sound of it, any “dancers” with loose enough morals to spend fractional hours in their room(s).
I need a vacation.
