Every single day between 10 and 11 in the morning they come. The hospitality students. On a break from class. And every day they head straight for the computers. And every day I tell them to sign in. And every day they don’t, until I remind them to.
We only have 4 computers. They are for research only. There are signs across the top saying No Email. There is another computer. It is only for searching the OPAC. It says this. In big letters across the top. O.P.A.C. Even the screensaver says “this is only for searching the catalogue. Do not use this for dicking around online or you will be asked to remove yourself from the computer. If you do not comply, it may very well explode.” 
Every day 10 or 20 students come in. Standing around the four ‘puters. The four that manage to sit use the computers to send emails. And to print out CVs. Every day. And every day someone will wander over and sit at the OPAC computer and use it to write emails.
Every. Single. Day.
And every day they chat and talk and discuss various whatnots. And every day I am tempted to ask them, in a Mal or Jayne fashion “if they were aware that this here building is a liberry? And you know what we do in liberries? We keep our gorram air-holes shut, not yammering like dumb-ass hogs.”
Instead, I tell them to keep it down.
But one day I’ll drawl at them. One day.
Course, they won’t understand me, seeing as they are all foreign, and that is why I don’t really mind them sending emails, cause it is their contact with their home. But still. You know, just glance up at them chatterings and say “Y’all might want to keep it down a mite.”
I don’t shush them. That’d be far too cliched.
And every day one of those mobile phones will erupt. Or I’ll hear someone carrying on a conversation on them. And I’ll ask them to leave. And they do. But I never impose the fine, cause they are always so gorram apologetic when they finally make their return. But, hell, iffin they are so sorry why don’t they learn their lesson for their next visit?
Sometimes peoples really do make you go hmmmmm.
