Teen Area Fun

Thank you, teenage boys, for running like bats out of hell as I was walking towards the teen area of the library. Tha's not suspicious AT ALL.

And, thank you for leaving the water-filled condom on the table in the teen area, complete with two little walnuts. You really make my days as a public librarian AWESOME.

Precious little darlings, aren't they?

There's a riff or a funny escalation here somewhere, I'm sure, that would work out. A "proper use of prophylactics" sign, perhaps, using their design to demonstrate whether or not the implied penis in question is safe(r) from STIs?

Or a simple note left for them saying "Ours are bigger"?

Ha ha - I love the "proper use of prophylactics" sign! Though this is the group that didn't know what "profanity" meant, when I was telling them to knock it off...

At least they didn't draw one one the table with sharpie... that took forever to clean off...

A trick I've found to remove Sharpie marks off solid surfaces is the cheapest version of "scrubbing bubbles" bathroom cleaner you can find. We get ours for $1 per can.

Spray it on the mark or dab it on with a cloth if spraying is not feasible, let it sit a bit, then wipe clean. Might have to do it more than once, but I've been amazed at how often it has worked.

Nearly 100 % - the stupid thing was completely filled. I Clorox wiped the hell out of the table just to be sure.

...complete with two little walnuts...

Because that's the size of their precious little brains.

As they insist on proving nearly every day...
