Too stupid to own a library card

I just put in a recall request at the university library for a book I need that is out on loan.

Five minutes later I walked past my bookshelf and guess what?

The good thing is that I now know who has the book.

I've done that a few times - I've even racked up fines for not returning books I recalled from myself. I got simultaneously annoyed at "whoever had requested my book" and "whoever wasn't bringing the dratted thing back". It reminds me of times I've wondered where on Earth my pen went only to discover it was tucked into my hair.

We all have far too many important things on our minds. Our minds are just too full of VERY important stuff to have to recall such minutiae.

Now, where are my glasses?

Oh my god, I do that ALL the time--I'll put in a recall request, then get annoyed minutes later when I get the email notifying me the book has been recalled (from me).

What Shrinky said. :)

All of your library systems suck. They shouldn't allow you to do that. Blame whoever wrote the software, not yourselves.

Yes, I agree with wolfa: you'd think that the software system would automatically send you a (snide) little email, telling you that you'd just recalled a book from yourself. Would be quite funny. Sadly, I don't think software writers have much of a sense of humor like that. sigh.

Heee!!!

Wolfa's right. I'm going to blame the software.

Or possibly use Shrinky's excuse that my mind is on far more important things.

Too too funny... does this mean you have to take the book back now that you recalled it from yourself?

T.S.T.... too many letters. :)

Why did I ejaculate? I am neither a boy nor a character in a Victorian novel.

It's all right Wolfa. It's completely random, so if you reload you'll probably be something innocuous.

Yes, B*, I do. Dammit.
