It’s amazing how many creepypasta things just get brushed off with cats.

"I’m alone in the house. It’s the middle of the night. I look over at my alarm clock. A shadow passes in front of it…"

But I have cats so nbd.

"Laying in bed, just getting comfy, hear the door to my bedroom slowly creak open…."

But I have cats so nbd.

"I went to bed alone, but I wake to the sound of breathing in my ear, and the wet, cloying smell of fish and decay…"

But I have cats so nbd.

"Cold morning light wakes me before my alarm goes off. I sit up and swing my legs out of bed. As they’re dangling there over the edge, something from beneath the bed sinks its claws into my ankle and tried to pull me under."

But I have cats so DAMN IT, OW.

Hi, I can’t sign because I don’t live in the UK, but I have severe hyperacusis. I don’t think people should be subjected to sonic pain devices.

I’m an adult who can hear the fake mosquito whine obnoxiousness. I was also a kid who spent a decent bit of time in libraries.

The sonic pest deterrent approach specifically aimed at kids is nasty enough in general. This is the kind of respect and esteem too many people show for young human beings.

But, trying to run kids away from a LIBRARY? Plus anyone else with sensitive hearing? Whoever though that one up should have to listen to a sonic weapon they can hear, 24/7, for at least a month. I wouldn’t want them hanging around my building, either. :-|

Signal boosting.  I can’t sign it either (same reason, not in UK).  And I’m deaf so even if I were sitting in one of those libraries, I would be oblivious and would still have been just as oblivious even as a child.  But, yeah, I don’t have to know what it’s like to be annoyed by certain sounds (though I DO sorta know since I’m not completely deaf!) to see that this is really unfair to kids who may NEED a quiet space away from school or home to study or do research or just settle down with a good book.  If they’re worried about kids being rowdy or something, surely there are other approaches they could take to address that problem that doesn’t involve penalizing all kids for something only some of them are doing.

All this even before considering that people should be ENCOURAGING kids to go to the library, not chasing them away :-(

Hope this petition succeeds.

When I was in school there was a house directly next to the back gate, and a lot of kids got dropped off/picked up around there since, well, there’s literally nowhere else to do so. And clearly the occupiers of said house objected because they installed one of these bastard things and despite the fact that you could hear it IN THE CLASSROOMS no one ever did anything about it. So yeah, these things are awful and migraine inducing and have no god damn place in a library!

I almost never post OT stuff on this blog, but fucking hell, signal bosting this one.
