Doesn’t Acknowledge Your Seniority

| Learning | February 9, 2015

(It is a day where a lot of high school juniors visit the college campus. I am walking past a table staffed by an admissions counselor when he stops me.)

Counselor: “Excuse me, miss, would you like some information about admission to [College]?”

Me: “Uh… no, thank you.”

Counselor: “You know this is good stuff to have. Application time will be here before you know it!”

Me: “I’m a senior.”

Counselor: “Even so, you could always—”

Me: “At this college.”

(He stares at me for a solid minute.)

Counselor: “Oh. Uh… have a nice day.”
