Okay, one of my favorite library stories.....we had a book turned in through our 24 hour drop box that was soaking wet. Even the 'due date' card we stick in them was soaked. When we called the woman to say she'd need to be paying for the replacement of said waterlogged book, she confidently reported that it had been that way when she checked it out.
Really? And did the clerk tell you to be sure you kept it in the same condition? It must have been a pain to make sure it stayed just as wet for the whole week she had it checked out.
