Just another example of the sense of entitlement millennials are raised with. Seriously, a Boomer works hard all their lives to build a career and they are supposed to just hand it over? What about working your way up in the world like everybody else had to do before you. Boomers had to work their fair of shit jobs.
...and what teacher has a huge pension? Like most other people on the verge of retirement, they probably had to readjust their retirement plans when the economy trashed everyone's investments a few years ago.
How would it be fair to take a teacher who has worked decade and force them to give up employment opportunities just so somebody with very little experience can get propped up. It's tough to get a foot in the door, but it's that way with every occupation. The sense of entitlement in this up and coming generation is staggering. And they're the ones who are going to teach kids about life? Scary!
Either way, an application fee is a bullshit cash grab.
When I read it, it sounds like there was a communication barrier.
I think this is a legit bitch. I would not have an issue confronting the person but not everybody is comfortable doing that, and why should they even have to? The focus here is still that someone is being rude taking up an extra seat, not that the person did not confront or call them out on it.
This isn't your grandfather's libraries. Libraries have to adapt to the times or risk fading into irrelevancy. They have become more things to more people, and that's big change to ask a city generally resistant to change. I don't know if I've ever noticed Soya sauce having much of a stink.
