A Call for Rescue

Have you ever been trapped in an unwelcome, one-sided conversation? Ever needed to be rescued? Then you need Lunarbaboon's Son Signal.

This happened a lot at one library that I worked at. We worked out a system for freeing librarians from endless conversations like these.

Well, it might. I certainly don't want to insult people afflicted with mental illnesses. But the library was within a few blocks of multiple homeless shelters and working with the mentally ill on a daily basis was a major challenge of working there. Saying that I just worked in a library doesn't accurately describe the unique difficulties of the patron base of that particular library.

But the anecdote was meant to accentuate the comic. Maybe it veered off-topic. I don't think I've ever been in the precisely same parenting situation that the comic describes. Let me see if I can reword the post.
