If someone wants to apply for a liberry card they have to go to the catalog and fill out a short application. Once they fill it out and hit submit they are given a temporary barcode number. If they don't write the number down they won't be able to set their PIN. And pressing the back button in an attempt to get the temp barcode is useless.
Man #1: I tried to hit the back button so I could write down the temp barcode but the screen said something like WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE YOU DOING?
Later in the day, Man #2 also forgot to write down the number. I was able to find his record from his ID. He commented-- that was way easy, I mean, is that it? No blood tests or DNA samples? Does the keychain card work at the grocery store for discounts?
