Talkin' Trash


One of my favorite things about working with students is the trash talk. Seriously, it is a riot.  This morning is a perfect example. Today is the last day of mid-terms. The kids are wiped out. Yet at 6:45am our computers are busy with students finishing work, textbooks are open, and the mood is pretty serious. It is clear Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks had long lines because there are coffee cups everywhere.

Two of the guys are griping about parking. One of them never got a pass for the student lot because it was too expensive, yet he parks illegally, every day, risking a $50 ticket and a $120 towing fee.

"Dude, you can't afford a parking pass, you seriously can't afford getting towed."
"Yeah, I'm not worried. I'd fight it. I'd win."
"How do you figure that?"
"I'm a pretty seductive guy. No judge could resist my charms."

His hair is sticking up, it looks like he slept in his clothes, and his pants are definitely about to hit the ground.  Good luck with this one, Your Honor.
