Last term when I got tired of shushing or yelling at the same handful of finalists for talking in the library, I complained to the librarians. They said they didn't have time to police the library.
Yesterday I talked to the dean of the College about the problem. She suggested I go study somewhere quiet, like the Radcliffe Camera or the graduate lounge.
I think I should petition the governing board or someone about getting a partial refund of my fees since I (and the other 60 graduates) find the library useless for study.
My choices essentially are to declare war on these kids and see to it that they find me more irritating and disruptive than I find them, or to just study in my room two miles out, the Bodlean, or one of the faculty libraries. I know what would be simplest, but it's kind of the principle of the thing, y'know?
