Old people, not having really anything else to do, congregate at the library; plentiful books on tape/CD, comfortable chairs, and a variety of free daily newspapers seem to be the general attraction. This is in many ways a good thing, after all they are %50 of the general library demographic (the other %50 being children and people who need to use the internets…yes I lump them in the same group for a variety of reasons a) I don’t like things in threes, and b) they both are generally annoying). However this position that they occupy has somehow lead them to the conclusion that they can do things in the library that most people couldn’t get away with, like farting for one. Old people fart– sometimes with great intensity– in the library. I really have no idea why this is, or why they seem to think it is acceptable, yet I have encountered it with enough frequency that I can no longer judge it to be an anomaly. That’s all I have to say on the matter.
