Jeff Baskin, 27, dropped the stapler from the reference to the floor this Sunday. Baskin, a regular library user, apologized and said he might be on drugs.
"I've never seen anything like it," library staff member Forbes said. "He had it in his hand one moment, and then just dropped it."
When asked if he was feeling okay, Baskin said he had not really been sleeping well and had been given a funny blue pill from a man in a white suit in the bathroom. "When the stapler tried to bite me, I was like, yeah, drugs," Baskin said.
The library staff then went on the hunt for the man in the white suit, but found no one matching that description. This has not been the first time such a man has been described, although he is often with a man in a red suit, a woman in a blue suit, and a woman in black.
"We're just trying to find some good shit, you know? Place can get boring," cataloging librarian Dr. Ezo said.
The stapler was unharmed.
