Itʼs Got My Name on It

by William Jackson on 2005-04-07

Itʼs barely noon, and I have had one exciting day so far. My ComputerScience professor allowed me to take the exam this morning at 09:00, forwhich I will be eternally grateful. Because we had to walk to an emptyroom and get me situated, she gave me until 11:05 to finish.

I didnʼt answer everything, but I had to stop at 10:50 so I could go tomy 11:00 Government class and take an exam there. The Government examwas significantly easier, and I finished it in about twenty minutes.Unfortunately, I was boxed in on both sides and didnʼt want to disturbthe students around me, so I waited another fifteen or twenty minutesbefore I left.

Iʼm certain only about 20% of the student in this Government class cometo the lecture every time, so I am always surprised to walk in on a testday to see the hall filled to capacity. This is the second time someonehas taken my seat, too.

Wouldnʼt that just frustrate you? Here I am, I come to every class andsit in the same seat every Tuesday and Thursday, and on test day somelazy student who probably never comes to the lecture just moseys on inand sits in my seat like itʼs fair game. It was probably only the fourthtime sheʼs been in that hall all semester, no doubt.

At least I remembered to take the test.
