You stink, sir.

I'm a very respectful user of the library - quiet, unobtrusive and clean. Not so the two men sitting either side of me in the row of computers. Each of them is munching loudly on sandwiches and the smell is quite off-putting. From a metre to my right the malodorous stench of tuna and raw onion is wafting towards me, from the left it's cheese and ham. Then the ignoramuses throw back their heads to guzzle from cans of coke. My nostrils have been assaulted, my equilibrium disrupted and all my other sensibilities have been quite comprehensively violated. Just saying.

Are they allowed to take food in there? Here, you aren't allowed to food near a computer.

There's not much you can really do about such behaviour is there? Not without making a big scene.

I cannot understand how rude people can be. They can eat "smelly" food at home or in a bar or restaurant, but in a library common sense would suggest not to eat at all.

I have seen people eating real food in a crowded bus. Obnoxious - I don't know how they do it.

Over population sucks. made me laugh and a bit sad at the same time. I will get over my depression, wonder what society will do. Nothing good I imagine from my 40 years on earth.

Eating inside a library should not be permitted,

I'd discuss this with the librarian. 'No eating inside the library' should be a rule.
