Eating in Gelman is a crime? Starbucks is pseudo 24 hours!

So I skip out on my friend’s 20th b-day party. I skip out on a movie date with friends. I skip out on fun to spend a Saturday night in Gelman. Starving, I walk downstairs and the 24 hour Starbucks is closed! Then a guy next to me says “Oh crap, it’s only 24-hours Sunday through Thursday!” Why have the library open 24 hours a day and not have the Starbucks open on the Friday and Saturday before finals?

So, when I ordered food, the security guard wouldn’t let me take it into the library. Yea, there are rules to follow but here’s my argument for why that’s ridiculous

1) I pay $50,000 dollars to go here

2) My goal is not to destroy Gelman Library

3) I’m a big girl, I’m not going to spill

4) There are people doing way worse things than eating in the library

5) Everyone eats in the library

6) People are eating in the library as I write this

7) I PAY 50,000 dollars to go here, I should be able to eat a snack wherever I spend 12 hours studying!

In Eckles Library (check out their blog) on the Mount Vernon Campus, there is a student lounge where people can eat and drink in peace. Gelman, you’re twice the size! Café Gelman on the first floor is a lame place to eat. If students were allowed to eat in the 4th floor group study room, then people might eat there instead of sneaking food to various spots throughout the building.

The rule is if they see it, they have to confiscate it. I’d have that rule if I were a university, but UPD and company need at least one person with a brain who can implement it correctly. What if the food is in your bag? They’re gonna force people to hide the food until they see no more food. Yay they win? Nope because next time I order delivery, I’m whippin’ out the big tote bag and smuggling it in. So unless GW wants to search me, they’ll never see me with food again.

Point is, there should be more food options open late near Gelman. Why don’t we ask Starbucks why they were closed in my time of need! Call 202-994-0202 (no email available). Oh and my personal goal is to eat food in a different place in Gelman every time I’m there until they allow 4th floor eating or until I graduate.

"I pay $50,000 to go here" is the brattiest, most brainless argument you could make. I was sympathetic to your point until you wrote that. Try and use your $50,000 education to make a real argument. Like this:

Have you ever been in the library during finals? The place is a mess, and it's because kids bring in food and don't clean up. Trash cans overflow with coffee cups and wrappers. The library should enforce the no food rule so I can study without smelling your hamburger and fries. If you want to eat while studying, go to a diner.

Good lord, I should stop reading this blog.

Complaining on GWblogspot. What a fucking surprise. I'm really excited for your class to be over.

Oh the irony...complaining on GWBlogspot about people complaining on GWBlogspot.

Get a dictionary. That isn't irony. Irony would be expecting a GWblogspot reader to know the definition of irony then reading the above comment.

Dictionary.com: "Incongruity between what might be expected and what actually occurs: 'Hyde noted the irony of Ireland's copying the nation she most hated' (Richard Kain)."

It's either ironic or you're just an idiot; you pick.

I thought rain on my wedding day was ironic. Are you -- are you saying Alanis Morissette lied to me?
