This is blogworthy. Or not. But, check this out. I had thought I returned a book at the end of the last semester (back in May). My record still showed it as Checked Out, by me no less. So of course, I reported it as checked in, so that they could look for it and put it back on the shelf.
They send me back a notice, saying they looked, and it was still unfound, so I would have to pay for it. 😥
Then, I was cleaning the car last week, and lo and behold there the “missing” book was, under the seat. So, I am totally prepared to pay an exorbitant fine, as it had been due in May, and I only find it now, at the tail end of November.
I go to check the book in, and the man said that the lost book fee and the fines will be credited back to my account–I owe nothing. For the first time in my entire academic history, my university has given me money back. They usually take money I don’t owe. Now, when I think I do owe, they don’t want it. Is that worthy of a wow, or what?
