I was following a girl today who had a $10 bill falling out of her right back pocket.
When I finally caught up to her, she was venting to a boy by the Chick-Fil-A stand. She told him she was furious; she had just come downstairs after having to pay an outrageous $3 overdue fee to avoid getting in trouble with the Bursar's Office.
I cut in, "Sorry. I don't mean to eavesdrop."
I made them aware, in case they didn't already know, that I was pretty sure students could renew their videos upstairs as many times as they wanted for free. I told them that although checking out videos are free, the libraries on campus tend to use steep late fees since instructors often need the videos for classes.
I said that I hoped what I said may help for next time.
Both stared blankly at me for a moment and I felt really stupid.
It was the girl who finally spoke.
"Thanks anyway," she said. "Next time, I think I'll just go to Blockbuster and avoid getting screwed by KU's bull***."
So, does Blockbuster not charge late fees?
