Whenever I don't have classes it has been my routine to go read in municipal/public library near our neighborhood. I am not someone who stays in school libraries because it's too crowded in there. I find it difficult to concentrate reading when you know that some students think that you are a nerd wanna-be, because it is common in our school that some wears glasses and pretends to read so other people will refer them as nerds. Well, I don't wanna be one of them.
I always stay for two to four hours inside a library, but today was different. In the municipal library, I always find my self alone. Well, there isn't so many people read in a library these days. I feel comfortable about it though.
So I was reading in this library, The Guardian written by Nicholas Sparks. I was inside the library for an hour or so, I kept on reading thinking that the library won't be crowded because it's Friday and a few hours before lunchtime. To think that our country has the anti red tape law, I don't bother going out even if it's lunchtime, also, I visit this library every Monday from ten in the morning to two in the afternoon.
At first, the person-in-charge in the library turned of the air conditioner, it wasn't a big deal for me, I can read without it. But later on, the person-in-charge told me that I needed to go already because he's closing the library. He also told me to take lunch first, I told him that I have eaten. Since he was going to close the library, I asked if I can borrow the book I was reading. And I was so surprised when he told me that I have read the book for more than an hour already, and still I want to bring it home.
Seriously? What's with people these days? Can't he get that I want to continue reading the book? Does he think I was just flipping through pages and just leisurely sitting inside the library. I was really irritated but doesn't show it. I still have respect to the elders. But he just kicked me out the library, just like that and I feel awful.
