Need To Spell It Out For Her

| Learning | October 16, 2013

(I am a librarian at a small college. Part of my job entails helping people with the computers in the library.)

Student: “Are you any good at typing?”

Me: “I guess so, why?”

Student: “Can you come help me with this?”

(I follow her to the computer where she has a typing test that is part of a job application up on the screen. She doesn’t sit back down.)

Me: “What’s the problem?”

(The student looks at me blankly.)

Me: “I can’t take a typing test for you.”

Student: “Oh… why?”
