In my senior year, my newly constructed high school’s library finished. In prep for an upcoming trip to France I took out 2 books from the newly opened library for the flights and buses we’d be taking. I proceeded to lose these two books overseas.
I genuinely thought they’d not let me graduate and was actively dreading receiving my diploma as they’d made it clear that if anything wasn’t done, you’d not be receiving your diploma that day.
I graduated and never heard anything about it.
