Opinion piece at DailyRecord.com from a library user that wants quiet at the library. The author reserves nothing as they discuss using choke-slams to solve the problem. Full piece here.
He also spouts this little gem, "Partly it's the general deterioration in public behavior, and partly it's the spread of the worse-than-worthless Master of Library Science degree, which seems to be as brain damaging as a doctorate in education."
Really Terry Dwyer, a math tutor, lives in Morristown, really? My mother used to warn me about Math tutors Terry, she said they were self-important, bitter and complain a lot. Its fun to push around stereotypes isn't it Terry?
Every library has at least one of these. I'm sure he's also furious that teens are sometimes allowed to play games on the computers, disgusted by study groups that get a little louder than a whisper and downright outraged that staff are allowed to use the library computers for things like work e-mail and LIS news.
Cell phones do get on my nerves, but people like this guy are ten times worse!
We have two like him. Self-important, life-failures who don't see the tragedy in their quest for more and more powerless people upon which to lay their losery burdens.
And speaking as, possibly, the only librarian to have wrestled and choked before - they've been doing choke slams in pro-wrestling since it was on black and white TV. My ass the Undertaker invented it.
Which he'd know if asked a librarian. Preferably one who won't contemplate giving him a whole lot worse than a choke slam.
