His legal name was Jonathan Franzen, he became kind of a fixture at the Dallas Forth-Worth airport where he busked by giving readings of his poetry and short stories in the late 80s. Garnering at first a small but loyal following of international travelers, eventually one of them, a publisher, began to take a greater interest in the possibility of disseminating his projects. Tragically he passed away in 1994 due to heroin and freebase cocaine addiction after neglecting his psychiatric treatment for three years, only becoming known to critics posthumously in the late 90s and early 00s. He's known as 'DFW' after the airport where most people saw him at his craft.

A friend of mine came over, let's call him Bob, and he brought his cousin with him. His cousin is a guy our age but he was very handsome and tan and large; not tall, but he looked like he worked out a lot. His arms were huge. They came into my room, the cousin was wearing sunglasses, and immediately the cousin noticed my bookshelf.
"Yeah, he reads a lot," said my friend to his cousin.
The cousin whipped his sunglasses off and was like, "God damn you have a lot of books." He pulled one from the shelf. "You read this one?" Literary Theory: An Introduction by Terry Eagleton.
"Actually, I haven't," I said, "I was going to take a literary theory class in college but then I found it wasn't required, so—"
While I was talking he'd pulled another one. "This one?" Moby-Dick.
I smiled sheepishly. "No, not yet, that—that's a pretty difficult book, I'm working up to it. I think maybe next year—"
He pulled another one.
"Infinite Jest," he read the cover.
"I started that one, but I just—"
"The Brothers Karamazov, you read this one?"
"Not yet."
"A Farewell to Arms."
"White Noise."
"The Royal Family."
"The Norton Anthology of English Literature."
"Well, that's an anthology, you're not really supposed to—"
He was tossing books over his back now. "The Fabric of the Cosmos."
"The Perennial Philosophy."
"Leonardo da Vinci: Flights of the Mind."
"This is a medical dictionary. Are you studying medicine?"
"The Bible."
"Irrational Man."
"Madame Bovary."
"Kafka on the Shore, Haruki Murakami."
"I did read that."
"The Concise Oxford English Dictionary. Do you even speak English?"
By the time we were done almost every book on my bookshelf was in a pile across the room. Finally my friend's cousin stood up, put on his sunglasses, and said "Let's get out of here." My friend curled his lips and patted me on the shoulder. "Sorry, man," he said, and they both left.
I went over to the pile of books and started replacing them on the shelf.

It's funny because librarians are some of the worst pieces of human fucking feces imaginable. Not the old school ones who are all retiring now, the last generation or even two generations of middle manager scum who have squeezed out those old ones, so that only a few 80 year olds still cling on for dear life. I have worked in several libraries. I will tell you who works in libraries. There's the fat old people who are perpetually a year from retirement but who cling on for dear life because they have nothing else. They sometimes care a little, but more likely it's just a job to them. There's the never-ending blob of managers and manager-managers who have six lunches and conferences a week to plan how to boost "public engagement" by giving out AIDS-positive pamphlets in the lobby and further displacing the actual book collection to where it won't bother the Asians who are only there to do their organic chemistry homework and chew their lunch with their mouth open. There's the new generation of twenty-to-thirtyish women with "Information and Data Management Services" degrees or something equally empty, who have nowhere else to be and would act and function exactly the same in literally any other office environment they wound up in, that is, like busybody cunts who fill the child-shaped void in their life with office drama, tinder penis, and desperately trying to maintain their social networks from college by being an opinionated bitch on twitter. And then there's one guy somewhere in the back who actually got into library work in the '70s because he loves books and whose soul has been crushed by 50 years of sociopaths and retards treating him like the office whipping boy.

The only profession filled with more odious people than library management is nursing. Nurses are all narcissist idiot women whose brain is 2% dedicated to improper and dangerous medical care and 98% dedicated to posting on facebook about how nurses are all superheroes and other emergency services workers should bow down to them and convert all their pensions into one giant superfund for a perpetual nurse worship party that never ends.

He is trying to sound as offended as possible and SHOW HER how much of a NAZI she is for some retarded nonsensical reason, because then he will get all the admiration hedeserves at fighting NAZISM, the evil in this world and show how OFFENDED he got, meaning in more prestige and value of his. She is basically getting shit for no reason, showing the low IQ of the left.

You're over-thinking it; it's about "muh degree" much more than it's about politics. You see, he went to SCHOOL so he could earn the right to direct in some marginal way the dispensation of knowledge into society and the actions of these fucking uneducated gutter swine plebians are a direct insult to his mountains of student loan debt. More than anything else he possesses the mindset of a bureaucrat - you didn't go through the "proper channels" and therefore whatever you did, no matter how insignificant or how helpful or how positive, is an anti-social act and morally wrong. Bureaucrats should all be fucking hanged.
