(I work the reference desk at the library.  One of my jobs is signing people in on the computers, and monitoring computer activity.  A teen boy approaches my desk.)

Boy:  Can I get a computer?

Me:  Sure, let me just see your card.

(I scan his card and see a warning on his account that he’s been caught on inappropriate websites on our computers in the past.  With this in mind I assign him to a computer that’s within sight of my desk… and with an adult at the computer right next to him.)

Boy:  But I want that computer!  *points to one behind my desk, out of my sight*

Me:  I’m sorry, but I’m assigning you to this computer.  Let me know if you have any problems.

(The boy gave up and sat down at the computer in question.  Not five minutes later I caught him looking up pornographic videos, despite being in plain sight of the rest of the library and right next to an adult.  Needless to say, he was banned from our computers for awhile.)
