There was a waived library fine listed on a waive sheet we use at the front desk. The amount listed as being waived was modestly large for us, $65 or so. Next to the amount, in parenthesis, was written the word "Deceased".
I recognized the handwriting of the person who waived this fine and went back to talk to them. "I see you waived $65 for a person who died." I said.
"Yes." They replied with a hint of trepidation.
"How do we know they didn't just die to get out of paying their library fine?"
