good ol' Paul

I was requesting a couple of books from the library on the Internet and I clicked on "requests" to see if I had requested all that i wanted and.....

suddenly I was looking at the request list of some guy named Paul. He has 5 things to pick up from the Central Branch, by the way - in case he's reading my blog.

Oh and now someone named Mehrdad owes $2.25 in fines. Busted!


So then I went to the Borders website to use the gift cards I bought myself with my Discover rebates. It won't let me check out and tells me that my credit cards are at fault 9I tried 2 different ones). Ummm.. Actually, no, they're fine. YOU'RE messed up.

I had my own library moment last week. Before we left for Clear Lake, I put a book on hold for Gage. They showed us that there were about 25 kids in line ahead of him. Then when we were in Clear Lake I got a nasty email saying that we should have picked the book up "days ago" and would be fined if we didn't pick it up by 5pm. I emailed back a rather snarkily polite message letting them know that this was our first notification and that we were out of town and 4 hours notice is unacceptable and we'd be back Tuesday and would pick it up then with no fines, thank you very much. I got an email back in a few minutes saying basically, "Okay. That sounds good."

I'll own it when I screw up (like the fact that we took the books that were due that day to Clear Lake with us instead of turning them in . . .. oops) but that was redonk.

Wonder who was looking at YOUR book request list at the same time!!!

That's what worries me - if someone decided to play a funny trick and cancel everything or request stuff I don't want or something...
