At the library just now, the automatic check-out machine flashed me an error message that said:"You have unresolved issues with your account. Please see a librarian."

I hope the librariann has a good couch.How jellus am I that there is an automatic checkout machine!
Oh, the automatic checkout machine sounds like heaven. Why don't we have one of those? (though, sorry about your account "issues") :)
Wow, I thought this things were everywhere now. All the libraries I've been to in the last five or six years (in Denmark, New Zealand and Australia, public and university libraries) have them.You poor Americans, always lagging behind the rest of the world :)
I know! And I have such librarian shame. That is, I am constantly overdue with something, and fear and dread the wagging finger of the grouchy librarian. Tho', I imagine I might fear and dread the wagging cursor of the auto checkout as well.
My local library is about to -- FINALLY ALREADY -- get automatic checkout machines. Except I think I am going to also join another library, which of course doesn't have them, but is a 10 minute walk from my house instead of a 15 minute drive. On the other hand, the walk is straight uphill, and really risky in winter.
the US is surprisingly behind in some things - online banking and bill paying, and automatic check out machines being the ones I find most frustrating.
Talk to me! (You know you want to!)
