We had our "first" Katrina patron last week, and I got all het up because we didn't have protocol in place to help someone out who had no ID. All he had was a signed form from the homeless shelter he was staying in, I told the guy I'd check stuff out for him if we couldn't get him a card. Well, they did figure out a policy, and the guy got a card. Today, after a sharp circ staffer supsected something fishy, it turned out the guy had a card or two at another library down the road, dated before Katrina was close to NOLA. As I replay my conversation with him, it makes sense. I thought I'd gotten much better at detecting manipulators and scammers, but I was had (as was everyone else). I'm still glad I gave this guy the benefit of the doubt, but I'm furious that someone would take advantage of others' misfortunes.
