Time To Face The Music And Get Educated

| VA, USA | Employees, Musical Mayhem, School

(I am getting my hair cut, and the conversation turns toward my school work. I am a musician.)

Me: “Since I want to get my doctorate, I will be in school for nine or ten years once it’s all done.”

Hairdresser: “Wow, I didn’t know musicians had to be smart!”

(There was no more conversation.)

This Story Has Yet To Be Titled

| Mexico | Coworkers, School, Trigger Story

(Before finishing college I work at a cyber cafe for about a year pay. The isn’t that great, but the work hours are flexible and my boss is nice and laid-back, and it is overall a good environment. I remember the first time one of my Coworkers told me about the slow days right after the end of school year.)

Coworker: “So, work load is gonna be very light for the next couple weeks. You know because of summer vacations.”

Me: “Great! These past few days were awful.”

(The week before the summer lull, our work increased ten-fold because of final school work, teachers bringing us exams to transcript, lots and lots of printing and scanning, etc.)

Me: “Why only two weeks? Classes don’t commence until August, right?”

Coworker: “Because after ‘detoxing’ from the finals both students and teachers remember that they have no idea of what to do with their free time, so they come back to us.”

(We both had a good laugh at that and later we told our boss. He told my Coworker that he had been working there for too long and gave him vacation time.)

Not As Wise As An Owl

| USA | Employees, Pets & Animals, School

(I am getting a book about owls in my local library for a project I am doing. I go to check it out.)

Library Clerk: “Why do you want this?”

Me: “I wanted to learn some more about owls for a project I have at [Local School].”

Library Clerk: “What else do you need to know? They fly and hunt and stuff. There is no need to make it complicated.”

Me: *face-palm*
