Today at work a lady called in reference to her son’s bursar bill that had a fine for a book that was never turned in. She wanted to know what the title of the book was. Well with a specific question like that we get into the issue with privacy. I politely told her due to privacy reasons, I couldn’t answer any specific question such as that.
My boss happened to be standing there and he joked saying that we could have all sorts of issues if we were to talk to parents about their kids’ accounts, like what if it was a book about $ex. I was curious so I pulled up his account. Turns out the book he never turned in was Fifty Shades Darker, which is the 2nd book of the Fifty Shades series. If you don’t know anything about this series, you’re not missing anything. Anyway, I remember when this guy came to check this book out for his girlfriend who had called several times before the book came in asking when we were going to get the book.
