It's hot here today and that doesn't happen oftern

Hot for my city is 78 degrees. I know that's probably cool for some of you, but it's hot for us. A few weeks ago, when it was in the 90's, one of my co-workers summed the situation for our city up in this manner.

He said, " When it gets hot here, people seem to wear the strangest items of clothing. It may have been in style and cute at one point in time. Since they don't get a chance to wear it often, it has remained in their closet. We see all types of bodies exposed that should not ever see the light of day."

For Example: We have a man who wears swim trunks, a jacket unzipped to the waist(chest exposed,) knee high tube socks and tennis shoes. He will walk around in here all day.

Update: Yesterday's highest temperature was 85 degrees.

I hate when men come into the store wearing too tight too short shorts, and you can see their junk is all smashed up. WTF I don't want to see that

So what have you named this regular?

His name is STAPLE MAN. He takes all 8x11 paper(scrap, flyers) and staples a huge stack at least twice a day. He always approaches the reference desk and says, "Can see yur stapla?" At first, I always had to ask him to repeat himself a few times before I understood what he was asking for. I now put the stapler on the counter whenever it looks as if he is approaching the desk.

The type of swim trunks that they wore in the movie Pride.

From Gullah to Ghetto and now Ivory Tower said...

The dude in the swim trunks used to hang out at UCLA all the time. He's an older, very slim black guy w/very bad underarm odor. I hadn't seen him for a while, I guess he's now a patron at your library.
