Youth Is Wasted On The Young

| Learning | September 27, 2013

(I work as a TA at a very large university. I have just finished my bachelor’s, and am starting my master’s, which means I am not that much older than my students. The undergraduate students I have are well-behaved… mostly.)

Undergraduate Student: “Hey [Name]! I have a question!”

Me: “Yes?”

Undergraduate Student: “How old are you?”

Me: “Um, I’m 22.”

Undergraduate Student: “Oh… so you’re old.”

(I am flabbergasted. I wonder if he realizes that I grade his exams!)
