Let me start by saying that I was not at the reference desk when this occured(thankfully.)
The one who's always calling in sick was. She told me what happened later in the day.
A patron approached her at the reference desk. He told that it was the second time that this has happened to him at the same computer terminal. He gave her a bed bug. He then said that he would check his home, to make sure that it's not HIS problem.
My response: It might just be his problem because a lot of people use that computer EVERYDAY
and he's the only one reporting a bed bug siting.
After a few hours and many telephone calls, someone from custodial sterilized the area.
