Sorry I haven't been posting much. I am hopefully hitting a slower period at work so I'll be able to put up some thoughts about projects we're working on here to find out what you all think.
I'm working the evening shift tonight as I usually do on Thursdays. Tomorrow is a campus holiday so not much is going on. My main concern was staying awake until a student worker came over to me and said, "There's a man at the circ desk who says he needs to be committed. What should I do?"
What indeed? This is a new one for me and of course there are no supervisors in the building. The man came over to the ref desk and he was pretty agitated. I asked him if he would like us to call campus security over to talk to him and he said yes. I told him we'd give them a call and they'd be here in a few minutes, and he could have a seat with me at the desk, or over in our reading area, or just wait in the lobby. He distractedly wandered off while the worker called security. The poor guy finally settled in one of our comfy chairs and I kept an eye on him until the cops showed up. He didn't seem like he was a danger to anyone but I suppose you never know.
Very strange evening. I guess that's what I get for thinking things were too slow!
