Drop box update

I dunno if I mentioned this here, about the ever changing rules that take play in an oligopsony where I work, which I probably have pegged wrongly, but recall a change in the manner in which library books were strictly going to be handled thusly. A book is due on the due date, by the closing hour in which the library closes, no ifs ands or buts. Hence, new procedures were taking place on the times in which drop boxes were to be retrieved. Quite a few people take for granted that they can return their materials borrowed from libraries in the drop box and as long as they drop stuff off before the library opens, the book is returned with the previous date, to accommodate those peeps who arrived just after closing time. In other words, people would stay with their items one extra day, with the mental not to return their loans before the drop box was gotten to by library staff.

Well the head honchos in this part of town caught word about this and said uh-uh. No way. Whenever stuff is retrieved from a drop box, we absolutely must back date the comptuers. Not that this affects my readers, I guess I'm just posting this as a sorta disclaimer. Hah. That'll be the day
