College students have to juggle jobs, social lives, and (most importantly) their grades. With all of that pressure and responsibility on them, things can get pretty intense, especially when grades are involved.
These students lost their minds under the pressure of studying for finals, writing term papers, and doing group projects. Who was there to catch it all? The librarians (and some fellow students).
These Redditors shared the worst meltdowns they’ve ever witnessed in a library, and… Well… Be glad you weren’t there yourself.
It was finals week. There was a dude who had spent probably the last four days in the library, only leaving to go take his tests. One day he is enraged, just screaming at everyone in his path as he charges up to the Circulation desk. He claimed that someone stole his stuff out of the locker he was using. The librarians go insane as they always do in situations like these. The campus police are called. The row of lockers where his stuff was stored was taped off. They start hunting down security footage. Then, a row down, he sheepishly peers around a locker door and says, “Oops.” He was just sleep deprived and forgot what locker he was using. smh (lotos eater)
Fights in the Library
I once saw two guys physically fighting over a free computer during finals week (bucketman1986)
Tears and More Tears
About 10 years ago. I was working in the computer lab towards the end of term. It was around 2am. All of a sudden across the room is this bloodcurdling scream, me and this other guy jump out of our wheelie chairs like wtf. Then we just hear sobbing. Me and my new found friend skul[k] over to the sound only to see a girl crying into the keyboard and hitting her head. It turned out her only copy of her final thesis was on a USB stick and was corrupted. It was due at 5pm that day. No idea what happened to her. Now, I always, always eject before removing.
