STUDENT FOLLY

In the spirit of an excellent history paper we all recently read, I am going to start recording some excellent words from students.
_____ _____ _____ _____ _____

"Is that thing you gave us gonna be on the final?"

< Yes >

"Oh. Well, I didn't read it."
_____ _____ _____ _____ _____

"What is my grade in here?"

< 35% >

"So, what do I need on the final to pass this class?"

< A Miracle. Or 600% >

"Is that possible?"
_____ _____ _____ _____ _____

"Is this exam hard? I was told it was impossible to pass."

< THAT guy got an A >

"Yeah, but he's smart."
_____ _____ _____ _____ _____

"Oh my god, I just failed high school."

< ... >

"Next time, instead of picking up a blunt, you'll pick up a pencil."

"Can I borrow a pencil?"

_____ _____ _____ _____ _____

Handing me a completed Scantron form, "Did I pass?"

Pretending to scan the dots with my robot eyes, < I dunno yet >
_____ _____ _____ _____ _____

"What? This is too long; it's impossible to finish."

< No, it isn't. The other two classes finished it with no problem. >

"Yeah, but they're smarter than we are."

< The whole class?! >

"Ok. What do we do if we don't finish?"

< Fail, probably. >

_____ _____ ______ _____ ____

< Okay, let's re-read that verse and think about what it means.>

"Hope" is the thing with feathers--
That perches in the soul--
And sings the tune without the words--
And never stops--at all--

< Okay, what does that mean? What is she saying? >

"It means, like, Hope ... is a thing ... with feathers?"

< ... >

" ... "

< I was hoping for a little more insight. >
_____ _____ _____ _____ _____

" I don't understand how something can dry up like a raisin in the sun; raisins are pretty much already dried up, aren't they?"

< That's how they become raisins. Before that, they're grapes. >

"What?"

In the spirit of "Student Folly" (above), I thought I'd share this gem overheard at the Police Station.

Inmate: "Hey, hey, Officer! Can you tell the sarge I gotta get out of here. I have to go to the hospital. I'm totally going through withdrawals here."

Officer: "Oh yeah? What're you on?"

Inmate: "Heroine."

Officer: "Oh. Well, you're not the first person to go through withdrawals in here, and you won't be the last. You'll be fine."

Inmate: "Yeah, but it's stupid. They expect me to stay in here while I'm going through this. It's just ... it's just stupid."

Officer: "Y'know, some people would say it's stupid to get addicted to heroine."

Inmate: "Well, yeah, it is."

Sales Clerk: ???




Sales Clerk: "That'll be $4.90"

Customer: Hands clerk a $5 bill

Sales Clerk: "Out of $5?"

Customer: "No, hold on. Let me give you a nickel."

Sales Clerk: ...

Customer: Hands clerk a nickel

Sales Clerk: "Okay, so you're change is going to be 15 cents ... "



Sales Clerk: "Your total is $19.98. Would you like to donate 2 cents to help local children?"

Customer: "No, I can't afford it."  Hands clerk a $20 bill

Sales Clerk: "Out of $20?"

Customer: "Yeah."

Sales Clerk: Hands the customer 2 pennies.

Customer: Drops the pennies into the take-one-leave-one tray.
