Reading The Riot Act

Local libraries. They are normally such peaceful places - but not for Angry Adam who has e-mailed the Worcester Park Blog with his tale of anarchy in the aisles:

"Earlier I was in the library at Worcester Park, I was busy updating my CV as well as sending a few emails to some of my good friends.

Next thing I noticed a nasty stench next to me. It wasn't body odour but the smell of greasy fried chicken and chips from KFC!

A man in his thirties decided to open up his greasy stain-filled bag and proceeded to open his big gob to munch on his foul smelling chicken.

Then he added salt and ketchup to his chips and then the idiot spilt his large cola all over my CV.

He promptly got up and left, leaving all his KFC all over the place. I followed him and confronted him telling him that he had ruined my CV and he told me in no uncertain terms to 'f off' and that the computers are only used for games and chatting and that there were no signs stating that he could not eat his fast food in the library.

He was a foulmouthed, arrogant and a very violent individual. The ladies at the library said these things happen all the time and not to take it personally. Fat chance.

Welcome back KFC - it looks like that Worcester Park is in for a rough ride once again!"

There goes the neighbourhood.

Nuthin wrong with eating kfc in the library. He just wanted a place to sit down and eat it. I am sick and tired of peoples' complaining about people eating, on the mobile....GET A LIFE! If you want peace and quiet do ur computer work at home. I love the smell of kfc any time of the day and nite.

Sorry mate, but am i hallucinating, or are there seats INSIDE KFC?! If he wanted a place to sit down and eat it, why choose the most irritating place to do it. Its a library, not a goddam restaurant, ignorant fool. He was just being selfish, and if you cant realise that, then youre socially stunted.

How about, if you want to eat your stinking food like an animal do it at home, not disturb people who might be trying to do something constructive. So many people dont give a damn about any being other than themselves, thats why this place is going to s**t!

mike i quite agree, especially how greasey kfc would of become by the time it was in that bag and he crossed the road.there is nothing worse in my oppinion than handling a book with dirty fingerprints and sticky pages. worse still there is sometimes bogeys and i have even suspected excrement. i mean come on what do you expect the first place most people go with there book is the toilet,or the bedroom,and god knows what lurks round there. im not pre judgeing anyone but 75% of libary users,especially the ones that vist more than once in a week. are phillip alleyer.

This kind of thing would never happen in the Old Malden library.

It's a public library, why shouldn't people be able to eat in there?

This isn't some fascist state, you know.

Well not yet anyway

Im sorry, but having a sandwich on the hop, and eating a full on greasy, smelly meal are different things. Eat in the library, fine, but not if its gonna affect loads of people adversely. He stank the library out, blatantly disturbed people getting the food out of the paper wrappings etc, no doubt got grease all over the computer and desk he was sitting at, spilt his sticky drink all over another persons work. And you think thats acceptable??? In fact, you think its fascist to think that that is unacceptable???

What happened to common decency ? As already mentioned KFC has a very good seated restaurant.. eat the damn food in there. They will even clear the mess up afterwards.
A library is a library for the benefit of those whishing to use it as a damn library !!

Come on....there is nothing better than reading a magazine in the library with a bargain bucket. I often eat in the library, answer my mobile and yell at my kids -- it is very theraputic! x

We don't get this kind of behaviour in new Malden

That's because it's more than a 100 yard walk from KFC to the library in New Malden and they'd have to cross a road without pedestrian controlled lights..... got to look after yourself you know!! ;)
