An employee of a small town "liberry" chronicles his quest to remain sane while dealing with patrons who could star in a short-lived David Lynch television series.

Dear Caffiene Addict Patron...

...I know from past experience with you that you are well-aware that you cannot drink your cup of locally-brewed coffee while using our patron computers. Why then did you purchase it, bring it into the library and sign up for a computer anyway, knowing that we would make you leave it at the desk? This maneuver on your part has assured that your coffee will be very cold by the time you've finished checking your email for half an hour. Is it really THAT much trouble to drink your coffee first and then come in to compute? After all, it's a gorgeous day. The sun is shining. Little squirrels are scampering. We have a picnic table.

Yours most sincerely and without malice,
