Conspiracy Guy Returns

Conspiracy Guy popped in for his semi-annual visit. He looked deeply nervous, as usual.

He asked me where to find a non-conspiracy-related book, I looked it up, wrote down the call number and he went off to look for it. I imagined his intent was to take the book from the shelf and read it within the library, as there was simply no way I could see him ever getting a library card of his own again, what with our Illuminati-spawned policy of requiring a driver's license, and all.

Shockingly, he did indeed return to the circ desk, after a bit, book in hand. I thought I was in for another fight, but he took out his wallet and fished out a library card. At some point, at some library, he managed to get himself a card.

Hah, I thought, now we have him!

Only after he left did it occur to me to look at his card to make sure we actually had a driver's license number for him.


Not there. He managed to get a card through Town-C's branch and somehow managed to skirt by the requirement despite the fact that he does indeed have a license. I've now loaded his patron record up with manual blocks requesting he supply one, which will give him all the amunition he'd ever need to say that we're indeed out to get him and in league with the forces of evil. I should go back and add a manual block requesting he give us a good scan of his barcode tatoo as well.

There's a good kind of asshole?
