Taking It Old School

, , | Right | June 24, 2009

(I am working in the department office one day when an old woman calls me up.)

Me: *on the phone* “Radio, TV, and Film Department. How can I help you?”

Caller: “I want to take a class in radio.”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but our classes are part of the Bachelor’s degree curriculum. You can’t just take one class.”

Caller: “Well… how long is the Bachelor’s degree program?”

Me: “Four years at a minimum, but the average student takes five years to complete it.”

Caller: “FIVE YEARS?! I can’t do that! So where else can I take a class in radio?”

Me: “Why don’t you try [College]? They have a radio station, so they may have some radio classes. Here’s the number.”

Caller: “What kind of school is [College]?”

Me: “It’s a community college.”

Caller: “A WHAT kind of college?”

Me: “A community college. You know, a junior college.”

Caller: “HONEY! I don’t need no JUNIOR college. I am a SENIOR citizen!”
