Okay, I'll be evil for a moment. We've got a new security lieutenant here who wants to go "by the book." I've tried to get along with him, but he's a misogynist and feels I'm being demanding by asking for him for a little help, and that because I tried to give him some tips on how things run around here, I'm trying to tell him how to do his job.
So, last night I decided -- he thinks I'm being demanding and telling him how to do his job? Well, really, when I think about it, I haven't really been letting security do what they're supposed to do...
So, from now on, it's by the book for me!
--Every time a student comes in without his/her ID
card, I will call him and tell him that there's an unidentified person in the library. He has to come up and investigate. You never know, it could be so-and-so's evil twin...
--Since our back door isn't alarmed right now, I think I need to write up a "door unsecured" report every time I test the alarm... once when I open and once when I close at night. He'll get two reports every day, reminding him that it's his job to know that the place is or isn't secure.
--Oh, and since that back door isn't alarmed, I think for my safety that he should definitely come up to the library and do a security sweep before I open. Really, it could be unsafe for me as a poor little overweight female librarian who has no security training...
--And, now that I think about it, our parking lot isn't always the safest place, especially when it's covered with snow and slippery. I think the lieutenant needs to walk me to my car, and wait with me until I get in and lock the door. That means he needs to walk me out and wait while I scrape off all of the snow and ice.
--How foolish of me to think that I know enough to train students in our emergency procedures! I think it's time for the lieutenant to step up to his responsibility, and I'll call him in to give our students the emergency rundown.
I wonder how long I'll have to toilet train him before he realizes that I actually know a few things about this place.
