so, for several years, we had owed the library no tiny sum of money.
this is not one of those things you think about, most of the time.
i had neglected to return several CDs once, and then they went missing, and *poof*, the library wants them back…
and you find yourself wiht a multi–hundred dollar library fine.
anyway, fast–forward five years, and my wonderful wife decides to do something about it, cause she rocks.
and it turns out they had wiped out our accounts, and we no longer owed them anything.
(apparently, they had to do this to a LOT of people, and killed off all inactive accounts older than three years. cool.)
so we went to the library and i checked out several CDs.
