The dude made the mistake of confessing to me that he’d stolen a bunch of books from the Oregon State library when he worked there as a student. Hello, what? I’m a former assistant librarian, perpetual bibliophile, and here’s some basic rules:
1. Don’t steal.
2. Absolutely don’t steal books.
3. The library is sacred, so stealing books from there should put you in the deepest circles of a Dante-esque hell.
Not only did he steal books, he stole a bunch of rare, valuable, beautiful art books that he doesn’t even read. Even though it’s been many years, yeah, after I caught him with that woman and I felt like I needed a little payback…reporting him for book theft was the only thing I felt ok doing. I dropped an anonymous tip and hoped the universe heard me. Perhaps it did, but after that I let the whole thing go and concentrated on the other guys who are flirting and pursuing – never a dull moment. He was a sociopath and an idiot anyway, and I wasted too much time just because he was a convenient… yeah.
Anyway, he made a point of coming into my work the other day, when he clearly knew I would be there, and he walked by my desk but couldn’t say anything because he’s a spineless pussy, and I was on the phone. I couldn’t help it, I just started laughing as he walked by. He’s such a horrible human, but he thinks he’s so great because he has money and some assets. I pointed him out to my beautiful coworker (we’ve shared some stories over beers and jello shots), she started laughing too, and she held up a sledgehammer with this hilarious, perky expression, and we both just lost it laughing. I hope he won’t be back. As usual, I’m sure he was just trolling to upset me and to try and get a response. Luckily, I have better things to do this time. What he did was so over the top awful, that he doesn’t ever get to talk to me again.
Lmfao, and if he did get in trouble over those books, I know he didn’t see it coming. I’m fiercely loyal and trusting, but when you fuck with a crazy woman, it’s guaranteed that she’ll get creative in her payback. And don’t steal books from the library, asshole!!!
