Please give me all the information you possibly can on a certain individual I and some other people I know have dubbed the Laughing Trenchcoat Man.
Here's what I already learned after having observed him for a couple years (believe me, I didn't choose to, our paths just cross far too often):
he REALLY frequents the libraries; that's how I came across him. He always comes into the Music Library, watches something on the computers in the Listening Center and lols. I mean, laughing out loud--REALLY loud. The second he thinks you might see what's going on on his computer screen he closes whatever it is he's looking at and starts pretending like he's browsing the home page. He also frequents the Health Sciences library, I'm assuming when Music is closed. I worked there one summer in addition to my regular library job, and he'd always be there around 5pm, using the computer. And same with the Art library, sometimes I used to give breaks to the workers there on the weekends, and I'd see him occasionally. I'm pretty sure he thinks I'm stalking him ;-)
He lives somewhere around the Greek row area, I'm pretty sure.
He always wear this brown trenchcoat, except perhaps in the summer when it's really hot, then he wears an immaculate white shirt. He's definitely an OCD character.
He has a UW Net ID, I'm pretty sure. He was still able to use the computer at the Health Sciences library after access on those became restricted to UW affiliates only, and he never ever asked for a temp ID according to my husband who used to man the front desk there.
Anything else anyone has to contribute? I know it's bad, stalking someone like this, scouting for info about who they are, but I'm just really curious, he's an interesting character and he definitely got the attention of little nosy me.
