    Talking When I ask for reserving, there was no one ahead of me.

    Hello~ Can you help me say this naturally please?

    A: Hi, I asked for reserving book called ‘Management concept’ days ago.
    ⓐWould you help me to check whether or not that is returned?
    ⓑWould you help me to check if that is returned?


    B: ⓐYes, it is returned but someone else borrowed again.
    ⓑYes, it has returned but someone else borrowed again.
    You are the third one in the waiting list.

    A: Wait wait,, it's little bit strange.
    When I ask for reserving, there was no one ahead of me.
    What are the critera for the waiting order?

    B: You are the free borrower, they are not free borrower they paid for it.

    B: Yes, it has been returned, but someone has borrowed it again. You are the third one on the list.
    A: Wait! Wait! That's a little bit strange. When I asked you to reserve it for me there was no one ahead of me. What are the criteria for getting on the waiting list?
    B: You are a free borrower. They paid for it.
