Certificate Of Remembrance

| Learning | July 19, 2017

(It is 15 years ago. I am working at the office of my university’s English Department. Students have to pick up a certificate for each course they complete. The certificates are sorted according to course, and then by name.)

Student: “I would like to pick up my certificate.”

Me: “Certainly. Which course?”

Student: “I don’t remember.”

Me: “Okay, what was the name of the professor?”

Student: “I don’t remember.”

Me: “Was it a man or a woman?”

Student: “I don’t remember.”

(We finally found it after going through all the courses — about 40. And the best thing? The guy was studying to become a teacher.)
