Hmmm

Normally, when people complain about having to show ID at times such as when paying by credit card, I just roll my eyes.

Today, however, I would like to know just why it is that I have to show my driver's license when paying a $2.25 library fine IN CASH? Wow, maybe I stole someone's library card and am viciously paying their fine! The horror!

Mind you, it's been on my record for about a year. Being a librarian myself, I tend to get most of my library materials at work. I'd tried to pay the fine online a few times, but their online credit card payment system consistently failed to work. But they've recently (for values of "since the last time I looked") instituted an ebook-borrowing thing, and I couldn't try it out without paying the fine and clearing the blocks on my account.
