Around the bend

I don't know if it is the colder weather, the new year, or the excess of fat in people's bodies, but they are driving me crazy with book returns. One by one they come in and stand around to personally hand me their ONE book return.

"You don't have to wait for staff you know. You can return books in this huge slot & bin that you are standing directly in front of. Right under the "Return books here" sign."

"Oh, I just want to make sure its checked in."

Patrons everywhere here is an important notice: We check in everything. The percentage that slips through the cracks is less than 1%. And those? They usually come about because people don't put the books in the bins. Put it on the counter or insist on handing it to us when we're busy with the 40 other things, well, then they sometimes get missed.
