I have reached maddening levels of frustration. Like I literally just uttered a very loud, very audible "Oh my GOOOODDDD" because I simply could not contain my disgust at how very, very fucking freaked up people are.
So this dude right?
On a computer. Accessing his Yahoo account.
When he has a meltdown.
He calls RefSupervisor to his computer and says that the computer began asking him for all sorts of personal information. Like his address, and name and age.
And he LITERALLY WORD FOR WORD says the following:
FreakShow: It would appear to ME that the LIBRARY is collecting data on me. That the LIBRARY is watching what I do on this computer. That BIG BROTHER is keeping tabs on me through this computer.
Me: Oh my GODDDDDDDDDDD.
RefSupervisor: Um. I'm fairly sure that was just a pop-up.
FreakShow: So the LIBRARY isn't collecting data on me? Because that's what it seems like. It looks like that to me.
RefSupervisor: Well, it's not library policy to keep tabs on your computer work. We don't have any sort of system like that. I mean, we don't even keep track of the books you check out. Perhaps you'd feel better if you got on another computer.
FreakShow: No. NO. At this point? I am DONE. I don't need to use computers like this. But I AM going to check, and validate that what you say is true.
Like DUDE? What in the FUCK. BigBrother doesn't give TWO FUCKING SHITS that you are in here looking up freaking emails from your Uncle's Cousin's second Wife in Idaho. Like get a grip dude. Like ever hear of fucking SPAM? Are you a MORON? I just wanted to go up to him and smack him the face for being so fucking weird. Like yeah dude...we want to KNOW what PORN sites you're happening upon today. Believe me when I tell you that the LAST fucking thing I want to know is what you're doing on the computer.
