Little bastard.

Had a guy today complaining that he had been charged too much for one book. See, our signs advertise a reserve fine maximum and he had twice checked a book out and kept it for over two days each time amassing over $50 in fines. Which, is more than the 'maximum' we advertise for a book.

Yes, but that maximum is PER CHECKOUT!

This guy thought he could be overdue with a book as much as he wanted as long as he just paid that maximum once.

I almost want to give him credit for this excuse. Its rather ingenious. I've never heard it before, and technically, from the signage and policies posted one could interpret it this way. Mr. Smart Ass is on my list.

Is that the good list or the bad list?
Because your good list is so long.

Good list? What's the point in carrying around a blank piece of paper?
