Oh, is it exams week already?

(Me, addressing the students):

“Sorry to interrupt, but did anyone park outside the Library? Campus Safety just popped in to ask everyone to move-“

(Student interrupts, screaming):

“Just gimme a sec! I’m gonna move it! They already told me four times! God, they need to CHILL!”

(Me, not saying any of the 4 gazillion sarcastic rejoinders that have leapt to mind):

“Well, alright then….just so you know, when they actually come in to tell us, it means you’re about to be ticketed or towed….”

(Student, still screaming):

“Fine! Whatever!”

Oh, having a bad day at work, dear?

Yes, it's exam week already...(looks over at student workers who are about to commit hari-kari).

Oh, I'M not having a bad day. I'm parked where I'm suppose to be and I didn't wait until the last minute to study for my exam....

A minute later, I asked a student to please hang up her phone & she THREW it into a study carrel. And that hurts me how?

They can kick & scream all they want. I'm not stressing over it.

LOVE the pic! So glad that I'm not a student anymore. I remember finals week all to well, and still have scars on my fingers from in. Building a model with sharp tools on no sleep is never a good idea.

I remember being tired, but no necessarily acting out in front of others...
