Why the Commons Sucks
Earlier tonight at the Commons, I was accosted by a woman who worked for the cafeteria and several Public Safety officers for "intended theft"--I had put some food in a few small Ziploc containers. The PS officers went on to chastise me, saying that the rules regarding food transportation were "very clear" and that I might as well "just obey them." Frankly, the rules in the Commons are as capricious as they are invisible: one day you're allowed to take food out, the next it becomes a crime. I say that this is despotism, and PS officers should focus on more important issues than a kid taking macaroni out of the Commons in a baggie.
