Guy under car
In the latest library development there is now a
GUY LIVING UNDER A CAR
in our parking lot.
I've seen worse. Plus, it's sort of entertaining. His red car has a flat now, so I don't think it's going anywhere soon. We asked the guy if he needed any help. We even have this handy Community Resource Advocate who regularly visits us who could possibly help him. The guy living under the car was offended at the implication that he needed help.
"Just because I am sleeping underneath my car in your parking lot does not mean I need help. I'm fine. I'M FINE!"
Sometimes some of the library patrons are a little concerned though.
"There's a red car out there." They say delicately. "And, well, there's stuff under it, like, backpacks, and... stuff. I think maybe it's been there for a long time."
"We're working on it." We say. And we are. We're batting it around quite a bit lately. It went from the front desk, to the circ manager to the branch manager. It then went from the branch manager to the Police. The Police sent it back to the branch manager who sent it to administration and administration gave it to property management. That's where it is now. Property management is thinking hard about who to send it to.
No hurry though. He's fine.
