now i am not trying to say that the lovely people at valley plaza branch library are incompetent. and i am sure that the nashville librarians are perfectly competent too. but when two people, half a continent apart, are having the same problem, im thinking... what are my tax dollars going for anyways?
the thursday before we left for phoenix, on the way home from work, i dropped off some books (one of which i knew was going to come due over the holiday weekend) and picked up some books i had on hold. when we got back i went again, probably on tuesday or wednesday. they said i had a book overdue - the book i had made a specific trip to the library to return... i said "no this cannot be!" and since the people all there know me pretty well and see me all the time, they believed me. so they sent out their little search messages to the branch the book belonged to and scoured their own shelves. no luck - the book is still mia. i looked again at home thinking maybe i made a mistake, but we all know that was silly, as i do not make mistakes. so now i have ablack mark on my library record until this is resolved. i hate that!
anna doesnt like her black mark either. what is with these people????
