Returning CDs After Hours
QUESTION 70: RETURNING CD'S TO THE LIBRARY AFTER HOURS
After my library is closed, I want to return music CD's that are late.
There are two drop-boxes in front of the library for after-hour returns,
one for books and the other for videos. The sign on the book drop box
says "No videos or music CD's here". The other box says 'For returning
videos'. I can come to two conclusions about returning the music CD's.
First, that there is no box for returning CD's because they are afraid
that dropping them in the box will risk breaking the case. Or second,
that I can return the CD's in the video return box because the sign
doesn't prohibit returning CD's there. If I'm not sure (and it will be
hard for me to return to the library for several days), can I make the
choice that's favorable to me, and drop the CD's in the video box?
Will dropping the CD in the box cause damage to the CD or its box?
It could be that dropping a CD into an empty return box could break
the case, or the CD could fall out of the container and get scratched.
If you feel that it could damage the CD or its case, then you shouldn't
do it. But if the sign concerning which box to drop it into is just
for the purpose of rules and order - and with this I'm not familiar -
then you should avoid doing only what they specifically told you not to
do. But if it could cause damage to the CD or its case, then you
shouldn't do it.
NEXT WEEK'S QUESTION 71: TAKING TIME FOR PERSONAL MATTERS AT WORK
If a person expects to be involved in something that might take up lots
of time at work, such as buying and selling a house, what is the correct
procedure for making sure that a person doesn't exceed what is permitted?
Even it it's a less time-consuming activity, such as buying a car or
is it necessary to inform one's boss?
