Talk about your guilty conscience.

An elderly woman was going through her things after the death of her husband, apparently preparing for a garage sale. She accidentally came across a book taken from a local library in 1936, when she and her husband were first married. Surprisingly, the library the book was taken from is apparently still open, but even more surprisingly, the woman brought the book back, and offered to pay the late fees. How much? Over $2700 worth. The library declined that offer, saying they were glad to have that book back. They did, however, accept a donation from the woman a few days later. Now that’s what I call clearing your conscience.
