Library Fu!  
I just completely went ninja on a student there. He wanders past the window of our office (when I say window I mean enquiry point, not a glass thing in the wall) talking very loudly on his mobile phone.

So I went out the side door, waited for him to turn the corner, then I pounced.

Loud Sho Voice "'Scuse me, you need to keep the volume down and you need to switch that phone off in the library."

Bloke looks at me, continues talking, I realise he's eleventy billion feet tall and stand my ground.

I ninged.

Go me!

(thank you all so much for your comments to my flocked post yesterday - I will be replying to each and every one of you in person)

eta bloody hell! What is it with people today? Walking back through from the other department I encounter another student doing the exact same thing! So he got the same treatment. (And of course the fact that twice so far today I've had Sam Winchester telling the world that his daddy shot their daddy in the head through the medium of my phone* has no bearing on this...)

* my new awesome phone (still the same number, just a new handset) wot I got given at the weekend by wenchpixie 'cause mine is slowly dying. (it's the Steve phone, I may encase it in lucite)

That's fine. See if I care...

btw - I hope your phone's switched off if you're in the library. I'm on a roll today!

When you say eleventy billion feet tall, is that as tall, or taller than Jared? 'Cause that makes for a hilarious mental image *g*
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: spn//sam lost his shoe - ongiarawhiskyinmind on February 28th, 2008 04:28 pm (UTC)
I'm thinking about... maybe an inch shorter than Jared? Still freakishly tall and, as you know, I'm... not tall at all.

(hee - that rhymes!)
laurahopeless_cynic on February 28th, 2008 04:33 pm (UTC)
You're a poet & you didn't know it :D

We short people have to stand our ground, but it's still funny to think of you standing up to a guy that tall... :)

Shouting at people makes me happy. I may be a little anti-social sometimes...

But he might fall down and bite me in the ankles. That would lead to gangrene...

Hee! When I get texts, Dean says he hopes my apple pie is freakin' worth it. :D I've shushed loud students in the library before, but it's not always well received. Hmph. If they can't read the freakin' signs that say SWITCH MOBILE PHONES OFF IN THE LIBRARY I doubt there's much on the shelves they can cope with.

People are ridiculous with their phones these days. They have intimate conversations in loud tones right in public! Like I care that Jenny went home with a hot guy last night but that the speaker could tell he really wanted to go home with her!
