Ok, right this very second, I am watching as a mother tells her pre-teen son that he can only take out two books. He is NOT happy about this - he wants to take out four (we allow 30 books out at a time). Oooo, the older (16ish) sister just asked her mother why he can't take out more books. The mother said, "Shhhh! Don't add to the problem!"

While the boy is definitely of the bratty variety, it kills me to see a 12 year-old boy's request for MORE BOOKS thwarted.
