A few weeks ago, one of my co-workers at the library found this little “business” card slipped into one of the novels in the Romance section. Typed on one side was the following text:
ATTENTION LADIES Intelligent, funny, male, 37, seeks affectionate, non-smoking lady, age unimportant, thin to curvy build, pregnant OK, submissive preferred, no drugs. XXX-XXXX or firstname.lastname@example.org
Obviously, I’ve deleted the telephone number and email address to protect the not-so-innocent, but can you believe the nerve of this guy? I wonder how many other cards he inserted into those novels. Apparently he thinks romance novel readers are desperate enough to seek out an anonymous man whose card they find in a library book. Gag.
