Listening Listlessly

| Learning | October 18, 2013

(I am a professor. Many students are waiting to ask me questions after a long lecture. As one is asking, he becomes aware that everyone else has gone quiet and is listening to us talk.)

Student: “Wow, it’s weird having everyone listen to everything I say.”

Me: “Welcome to my world.”

(There is a lot of student laughter. As the students finally leave, I overhear some students from the hallway.)

Other Student: “What did he mean by ‘welcome to my world?'”

Student: “Dude, are you sure you actually got into this college?”
