Late fees

13 Feb

For the first time in my life, I had to renew a library book.  And I still ended up returning it late.  It was due on Friday, but I didn’t finish it until Friday night and just returned it today.  For that blasphemous infraction, I ended up paying a hefty late fee of… 10¢.  Wow, they’re so draconian over there at the library.  I didn’t have a dime, so I gave them a quarter and donated the extra 15¢.  How I love the library!

    You could have held out until “Amnesty month’ in April (I think it is) 🙂

    Years ago I remember my wife getting notices mailed to her as they were trying to collect some such fine that wasn’t even as much as the stamp they used. To make things worse, my mom worked at the library and ended up guilting my wife into finally returning the book.

    I’m a librarian. Next time, talk to me and I’ll put in a good word for you. Maybe commute the penalty to 9, or even 8 cents.
