Ivan of RamblingLibrarian fame loves stories, especially ones related to libraries. So when he went on the topic of library fines, it was only natural that I spilled the beans on my true life event which:
1. Is related to libraries.
2. Shows that shit happens, but so do miracles.
3. Renders me a shamelessly swell guy.
Sillyness aside, Ivan asked if he could blog about it and I said ok because “life is full of stories” so we’d never run out. He then posted our instant message conversation in it’s full uncensored glory…
Kevin: Guess what… it’s library story time! When I was 18 or so, my classmate said she needed to borrow books and (had) lost her library card. not thinking too much about it, I loaned her my card. a week later, she said she lost my card
Ivan: uh oh…*
Kevin: I was like “WTF” but I just said ok and walked off. so for a period of time I didn’t have a card. then one day in orchard rd I boarded a bus home and on one of the seats was a wallet. it was very obvious and no singaporean would claim it. I took it and asked around realizing the owner probably left.
Kevin: I looked for some ID in the wallet. it belongs to an indonesian student in RJC. there was $1k in the wallet!!
Kevin: Guess what I did next?
For the rest of the story, you’ve gotta read his blog!
