I had to return a library book today before I was done reading it.
Oh, I tried to renew it, but the website told me "This item has holds", meaning of course that someone else wants the book so I can't renew it.
How frustrating is that, right?!
"Oh, just read faster/more, Adam," you say, "other people need books too."
Well, I would have, except the book was Master and Commander (yes, the one they made the movie about,) and I had to look up every third word until I finally learned the difference between a mizzen yardarm and a main topgallant.
And now I'll never know how Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin became such good friends. I hope you're happy, random person who put a hold on my book.
People really need to be more accommodating of my needs.
