It’s been a long time since I’ve been to the public library. Three years and 15 days to be exact. Why do I know this? Because I tried to reserve a library book this weekend. I couldn’t request a book though because there was a “problem” with my account. Turns out I had a library fine dating back to March 6, 2004. But the best part is how much I owed for a three-year-old late fee:

A quarter. Twenty-five cents and I’m back in good standing with the Sacramento Public Library.

I only wish my credit cards would be this understanding.
