specificly "welsh rain"? - by far the worst type of rain
Yes - this is very true! I thought I would try and appear intellectual whilst on a two week camping trip and so whilst hiking through the Harlech valleys I brought a giant book about European expansionism, needless to say it didn't quite fit in my rucksack and got totally drenched somewhere between a field with many sheep and a field with fewer sheep...

How's that going?
I tried to challenge them but they said we put posters up, we emailed everyone, we told everyone in sight...that books are due on the 5th! Well I didn't see anything
I only emailed them yesterday (after I got the letter) so no reply yet.
My defence is that they said they sent me email reminders...but seen as how I've been a temporary leaver since November, my uni email account has been inactive, so this letter is the first reminder I've ever had.
Okay it's my own fault for not realising I had an out of date book, but still £106 is ridiculous. Especially as they say that £18 is a "billing fee". That's extortionate - how does sending a letter cost £18?
About £14 or so, but for more than one book. Was so annoyed with myself, could've just bought 2 or 3 of the books!
Was really annoyed with my most recent fine. Someone requested one of the books I was using to revise for exams and I knew it must be someone on my course, but the choice was either go without the book or take the fine. Was about £4 in the end and it just felt so silly that two people could need a book as much as each other, yet I lose money because I have it. The person could've found another book, but maybe because they didn't remove their request I was still getting charged! Stupid system! Grrr!
£4.50 because three items were three days late Luckily I noticed then I hadn't renewed them because it was the holidays and I couldn't get in to pay the fine, and you can't renew online once the fine is >£5. Would have been in massive trouble if I hadn't remembered that day as then couldn't have renewed any of my books for about three weeks!

I got billed $150 for a book, but they gave me all but $10 back when I produced the book. It was over summer vacation, because apparently I was not "enrolled" or something. Arg.
What the hell?! I gave their sodding books back and they still want me to pay
I have £12.20 in accumulated fines at uni. Biggest individual fine was £6.40 out of that.
I think I owe my local library at home money because I requested books from another library in the service and didn't realise that it costed loads to do that and then I forgot to renew them. The council are shutting that library down though and I doubt I will ever go to any of the others so I'm hoping whatever I owe will get lost in the system somewhere.
