A Textbook Example Of A Fail, Part 2

| Learning | July 3, 2017

(I am a library tech who works at the circulation and reserves textbooks desk. To check out a two-hour use textbook, students have to give us the book title. This story happens at about midterm time.)

Student: “I need to check out a reserve textbook for human sexuality for psychology class?”

Me: “Yes, we have two titles for that class. Which one do you need?”

Student: “I don’t know the name of the book.”

Me: “Do you know your teacher’s name?”

Student: “No.”

Me: “Do you have your syllabus?”

Student: “No.”

Me: “Well… I’ll just give you the most requested title.”

Student: “Okay, that’s fine.”

(I check out the book to the student and he leaves.)

Me: *to coworker* “How did this guy get through class up to this point?!”
