Scene: Monday after Thanksgiving. The Contemplative Cynic's cubicle-office. Phone rings.
"Is this Dr. Cynic?"
"Yes. How can I help you?"
"This is Jenna at the Career Center. I have two of your students from Hamsterology 101 asking for feedback on their final essays. Did you send them up here? They claim you sent them here."
"No, why would I send them to the Career Center? I told them to go to the Writing Lab."
"That's what I want to know. We're doing a workshop on resumes and they show up with their essays instead of resumes."
"I told them to go to the Writing Lab. Please direct them there. I'm sorry my students are too lame to realize that the Writing Lab is not the Career Center. Don't tell me who they are because I'll likely give them a lower grade on their essays."
