Search and Research #60

I was looking in our lost and found the other day, and was suprised at how many articles of clothing there were. Socks, shirts, hoodies...all sorts of stuff. I thought we could open up our own little thrift store there in the lobby. Anyway, talking about the lost and found got my friend Jason thinking about the strip, and he came up with the, I think, brilliant name Dressing Down from the Lost and Found. Enjoy!

I've never had a catastrophic staff meeting but it's funny to think about. If anyone out there has a funny staff meeting story, I'd love to hear it. Enjoy!

Pardon our absence this past week. My wife and I had a great time hosting friends from Florida and Zimbabwe, but I did not get any strips done. I'm up and running again though. It's been weird to not draw all week...I suppose that's a good thing. Enjoy!

I had to do this one as a follow up because in the real life interaction that this is based on, the patron asked to check out a book before leaving! I did just now wonder why Marc didn't get SCOM to check the book out, but I think Marc isn't making any concessions for this guy. Or...maybe SCOM goes somewhere else at night. That might be something to explore at a later date. Either way, enjoy!

This is based on the experience of my friend and coworker Bryan this past weekend when we had abbreviated hours due to spring break. I'm not sure why, but it seems that most college students who are confronted while doing something against the rules in the library get sort of belligerent. Is that an unwritten rule somewhere or something? I'm not sure, but anyway, enjoy!

This was me last Thursday. The guy in the cafe in our building offered me an espresso while I was down chatting with him, and not wanting to turn down free coffee (my coffee policies are very similar to my cake policies...see last strip) I accepted. I'd never had an espresso before, so it was a SHOCK! I spent the rest of the day drinking water trying to get the aftertaste out of my mouth. I also couldn't concentrate on anything for the rest of the day. I would start working on a project and then a thought would hit me and I'd move on to deal with that thought. Then I had to sit at the service desk for 2 hours!!! I really wished that I had someone to tazer me so that I could wake up after it had all worn off. Hence, the strip. Enjoy!

Hey guys (in the plural, non-gender specific, group of people sense) sorry about Wednesday, I had some personal stuff keep me busy all day so I didn't have a chance to do a strip.

In this one Marc's policies are in fact my own personal policies about birthdays, which were faithfully enforced at the party in our library last week. Enjoy!
