Greetings readers! Some of you might remember the post about how I can't make stuff up in prison. (Refresh your memory here: I Can't Make This Stuff Up http://soyouwanttobeaprisonlibrarian.blogspot.com/2014/09/i-can-make-this-stuff-up.html)
Well today I had a conversation with this patron about three more missing items for which she was charged. Essentially the jist of the conversation was her saying I shouldn't have charged her because she turned in those books and why would she keep them if she didn't want to pay for them and me disagreeing because I got something back in the mail from her mom THAT HAD BEEN STOLEN FROM THE LIBRARY.
The best part of the conversation?
Patron: "Oh yeah, and my mom wants that book back because she paid for it!"
