the swift arm of the law

sometimes the cops come hang out in the library because they want a place to sit that's warm in the winter and cool in the summer. and sometimes they show up when we call them, you know like for emergencies and stuff. but they don't always come here when we call them, it being "the hood" and all.

yesterday these two cops come in and they're asking all these questions about someone who may or may not be dealing drugs in the library. turns out someone called the cops and tipped them off. so my manager starts going around trying to figure out who called them.
manager: did you call the cops?
me: no.
manager: because they are saying someone called them yesterday about someone dealing drugs in the library.
me: why are they here today if someone called them yesterday?
then she kind of shrugged and rolled her eyes (she loves rolling her eyes). then she walked away.

of course the police left with no useful information or leads or anything. i mean, i'm sure most times when people are dealing drugs in a public building they'll just hang around for days at a time, so there's really no rush for the police to get there in a timely fashion. but i guess our drug dealer is a little smarter than that and decided to leave the scene of the supposed crime. well, what will they think of next?
