Elderly Woman Jailed For Throwing Condiments In Library Book Drop

There are a number of ways to let an establishment know that you are unhappy with the service that it provides. Do not, however, follow the example of a 75-year-old Idaho woman who deposited ketchup, mayonnaise, maple syrup, and other sticky condiments in her local library’s book drop, destroying books and evading capture. She recently plead guilty to the crime, and will serve one month in jail.

The woman was not caught until Boise police staked out the book drop and caught her in the act. According to the police, she attacked the city’s libraries more than ten times.
