Suzy is lugging bags with various baskets for her basket-weaving class. She is late, as traffic was bad.
A student in a white T-shirt jumps out of the project room across the hall.
T-shirt: Oh, Mrs. Suzy, do you have a moment?
Suzy: [To self: Why can't they ever call me Dr. Suzy?] No.
T-shirt: But I have some important questions!
Suzy: My office hours are on Thursday.
T-shirt: But I have to work then!
Suzy: Well, I have to work now.
Is our school the only one where basket-weavers have such lucrative part-time jobs that they expect us to have time when it fits their schedule?
