It’s true. I’m in debt…at the library.
I’ve been $2.80 in debt with them for about 6 months. I somehow find it impossible to return a book within the 3 week timeframe allotted to me.
I’ve tried to pay off my debt, too!
The first time, I scrounged around in my huge black satchel (it’s ridiculous, I’ve literally lost Lloyd in there before) and came up with a $0.56 down payment. They rejected it! They said to wait “until I had the entire amount of the debt all at once”. Talk about debt forgiveness.
The next time I was there, I got frustrated with those cute little librarians staring over the rims of their glasses at me and asking if I “knew that I had a balance?”
Of course I know! Here’s my credit card!
They wouldn’t take that either! Something about how they can’t charge anything less than ten dollars or some crazy talk like that (pleeeease, I’ve charged 95 cents at Quik Trip before).
So, yep, it’s true. I’m not technically debt-free. I would really like to be though! If only they would put me on a Generation-Y payment plan – they know we hardly ever have cash on us!
