Library excitement

My first hour at the reference desk. 1/2 hour into the shift. One of the pages runs to the reference desk and tells us to call security. A man was standing at the copy machine destroying books, not 1,2, or 3, but he had a stack of about 30-35 and he was riping them apart.

My co-worker went over there because I had just answered a telephone call. He yelled, " Call the police because I want to go to jail. I want to go back to rehab."

When the security officer arrived, the man yelled, "ARE YOU GOING TO CALL THE REAL POLICE NOW?"

@Opinionated Diva,
It must be something in the air, water, or whatever. These folks have been doing some crazy things all week. Stealing multiple books, starting arguments with librarians/other patrons.
They snap on our security staff everyday.

Damn, now that was funny. He was thinking I can act a fool and get a free escorted ride home to rehab by the police where there's food and a warm bed.
