WWII - A Likely Excuse

A man returns a book 69 years later. Blames the war.

From a piece on the Huffington Post...

An Estonian man has returned a library book 69 years late, partly blaming a World War II aerial bombing that damaged the library for the late return.

Ivika Turkson of the Tallinn Central Library says that last week the man in his mid-80s returned the overdue book – which was checked out on March 7, 1944, while Estonia was occupied by Nazi Germany – along with an apology and an offer to pay a late fee.
