take it from me: don’t be a librarian

http://www.nl.sg has this (relatively) new service where you can ask a librarian questions. Sounded interesting so I had to give it a try.

Librarian: Hi how may i help you?

Me: what can i do at a library

can i play dota at a library?

Librarian: dota?

Me: yes a computer game

Librarian: if you are using your own laptop to play games, without using our power source, we can’t stop you.

If you are using our power source, then its forbidden

Me: why is it forbidden? i play it every day and every night it’s very fun

Librarian: A library does not provide power source for gamers. It is a place for people to study and conduct their research.

Games are more suitable at home or at a gaming cafe.

Me: so what can i do at a library? can i sleep at a library? some books have soft squishy covers, it’s quite comfortable.

Librarian: no… you can’t sleep at a library. as i’ve stated earlier on.. the library is a place for people to browse and borrow books or to study

do you have any more questions?

Me: what is a library

She took three minutes to answer this (copied and pasted Longman definition) and hurriedly logged off. Abel, are you reading this?
