I use the library. Frequently. And I'm absent-minded. Did I go on Tuesday or Wednesday? Let's see, videos are one week--I know that much, but did I get the books out two weeks ago or three? Result: I accumulate unnecessary fines.
I tend to let them add up before I pay them off, one reason being that I don't frequently have cash about my person. And when I do, well, it's just not one of my priorities. As long as my account doesn't get blocked, I'm fine.
So last week I paid off my fines for one of the three library systems I belong to. The fines had been there since, oh, at least a year--maybe two. Or three; my card had expired, after all.
So, anyway, I paid my fine--$11.35.
In quarters (and a lone dime, of course).
