At Least it's not Ypsilanti

I know, I'm constantly complaining. I can't help it. But none of my troubles quite measure up to this from Ypsilanti. After helping a man in the Children's section, the librarian returns to her desk. Then she

...looked up to see the man step out from behind a bookcase, completely naked, a police press release said. The man "thrust his hips in the direction" of the woman, but didn't make any other movements toward her, the release said. The employee went upstairs and called police. By the time officers got there, the man had fled through an emergency exit, taking his clothes and the children's books with him.

So forgive me for whining so much. I've had people steal stuff and leave through emergency exits, but all of them had the decency to make like Adam and cover up.

Those are the patrons that make me most excited to work in this profession. When I worked in an academic library that seemed to have an above average amount of creeps (mostly townies), I didn't know if I was happy or sad about the fact that I had a personal escort to walk me to my car on late nights.
