Overheard at school
« on: November 29, 2013, 05:52:54 PM »
Student 1: I had to park in the far parking lot.
Student 2: I parked in the close one! Do you want me to drive you to your car?

(I might further point out that student 2 spent the rest of the conversation explaining why she can't afford a computer, and student 1 is graduating late because she needs to work extra hours to pay for her car, despite living four blocks from the school. They're nice people, but geez...)

This remind me of being at the mall after work waiting for the bus. I'm standing there and 3 women come walking out, grandmother, mother, and daughter, all fairly obese. The father comes through and swings into a parking lot and the daughters exclaims "He isn't going to make us walk over there is he?!" He parked in the handicapped spot in the first spot. *shakes head*

In college through 2012. I had a classmate who was very critical of other students eating habits and would harass us about eating certain things, or would loudly mention certain foods were terrible if she happened to disapprove of what someone was eating and always bragged about buying organic. I never bought any lunch in the cafe the entire year I was there, and only ate the food as offerings from other classmates. Many times every week she bought greasy, unhealthy deep fried foods or burgers, along with the other student who always claimed organic and fresh was the best. The hypocrisy and expense hurt to watch and be the target of. My lunches sure as heck weren't healthy all the time, but it ranged and I wasn't paying 5$ for such small amounts of crappy food. OR if they did buy salads it was 5$ a pound  @.@

Only acceptable if student 2 is trying to get in student 1's pants.

"Drive you to your car" is one of the thinner euphemisms for "doin' it" that I've heard.

Ha!  That reminds me I parked in front of an electric vehicle charger the other weekend.  There were like four sitting empty, and they had clearly previously been handicapped spaces, but they hadn't gotten around to putting up any actual signs saying "only electric vehicles here."  I'm all for alternative fuels, but I think it's kinda wrong to take the absolute closest handicapped spaces and turn them into electric vehicle spaces. 

Plus, I'm getting kinda grumpy about those chargers.  A new CVS recently went into a nearby empty lot -- great!  They did a real nice landscaping job!  Two months later they rip up all the landscaping to put in two electric car chargers and giant/noisy transformers to power them.  And I'm sorry but if you are driving your electric car around San Francisco you really don't need to charge it while you are at CVS.  The city is seven miles wide.

I've never had an uninvited lecture about health or exercise launched at me by an actual healthy person.

Drives me nuts when a student complains about not having any money. But turns around and drinks all night. Or refuses help to budget (There is a specific case on this last one)

Boy am I glad I didn't have a budget back in college and grad school. Looking at it now would've probably killed me due to the massive amount of beer-related budgeting shifts. Either that or I would've had to stay sober all the time which is even worse.

You can do that cheaply. Go to a house party with a keg. $5 for a cup and unlimited beer all night.

That's what I did at school. $10 was the most I ever paid.
