Due to popular demand........

Due to popular demand(okay......ehn....just one person), I have decided to update you all on what has been happening in my life.Its not as if I did not want to, but ehhhhhhlaziness is a disease. Anyway, this week started quite okay, things were moving rather uneventfully when one day I noticed a stack of books hidden away....on the bottom shelf of my bookshelf(or whatever it is called). Ehhhhhhhhhhhn, what the hell? didn't I return these? Last date for returning them was 22nd of december!!!!Okay, no need to panic, I'll just take them there and return them. So off I went to the library, got there, went to the computer stuff and tried to return them, well, all the stupid computer said was "item not found", shit! I'll have to talk to the staff! shit! I hate talking to them, i'd rather just do everything by computer........well, anyway, I stand in line for my turn and this is what happened

Waffarian: Ehhn, I tried to return these but ....it says "item not found"
Unsympathetic woman:Okay........let me see......(she does some stuff on the comp)..well, these books are labelled as "lost".
Waffarian: Ehnnnnn, they are not, they are just late
Unsympathetic woman: Well, they must be really late
Waffarian:I want to return them, could you do that here?
Unsympathetic woman: Yes, I'll do that but......its going to cost a lot cos they are late, and thats quite a lot of books you have there!
Waffarian:Yeah.......right......so how much is it?
Unsympathetic woman: That will be(I converted the sum to pounds)400pounds.
I start to laugh hysterically hahahahahhahahahhahahahahahah
Waffarian: Sorry, what did you say?
Unsympathetic woman:400pounds
Waffarian:why?
Unsympathetic woman:what do you mean why?
Waffarian: well,that just seems to be absurd.......is that the fine cos they are late?
Unsympathetic woman: Well, as I said, they are "lost", so its the amount all the books cost altogether
Waffarian: Yeah.........the thing is they are not lost, I just RETURNED them, so forget about how much they all cost "if they were lost", tell me the fine for being late.
Unsympathetic woman: .......well, that should be 100 pounds.....
Waffarian: For what?
Unsympathetic woman: Well, administrative cost for sending the bill and so on
Waffarian: Ehhhhhn, is there anything you can do or should I be talking to somebody else?
Well, I got to see the head of bla and bla , i told her this fantastic story about me being in "Africa" and how my friend who was suppossed to be trustworthy fucked up with the books and how I will never be able to pay that amount in my entire life. She was so kind and sweet, needless to say, I am not going to pay a penny for my stupidity!
