We have been watching 19 Kids and Counting as a family and are really enjoying it. We had checked out season four from the library and renewed it as many times as we were allowed. I had a fever one morning, but in order to avoid any more late fees a trip to the library was a must.
We arrived quite bedraggled after the half hour drive. I stood in line in hopes that we would be able to check the DVDs out again if there were no holds on the series. That’s what I told the lady when I reached the front of the line.
“There aren’t any holds on this,” she told me, “but I cannot let you check it out again. You have to wait 24 hours before checking it out again.”
I looked pitiful and said please, but the lady would not relent stating that was library policy. I understood and turned to leave.
“Would you like me to place a hold on this so that no one takes it, and it will be waiting for you in 24 hours?”
“You mean I can’t check it out today, but you’ll hold it for me so that no one else can check it out if I make another whole trip back over here tomorrow?”
Now is it just me or is that completely silly?
