Someone just introduced herself to me to say she missed three weeks of classes because instead of Chem I, she's been sitting in Molecular Biology II because she wrote down the wrong room number.
She was very calm and composed as she walked up to the MBII professor to ask "What is going to be on Wed. quiz? The syllabus says chapters 1 and 2, but we haven't done anything out of the book yet."
I'm serious - I look forward to her. Obvious ridiculousness aside:
1) she found the syllabus online
2) she read the syllabus
3) she read the assigned reading (or she wouldn't have known it didn't mesh with what was going on in class)
4) she didn't piss in her pants because she was 5 semesters behind the rest of her class
5) she didn't piss her pants when she realized there is a quiz Wed and she has to take it and she hasn't been in the class
She might be a spaz, but she can read. That probably sets her ahead of the rest of the class, who I suspect are zombies that scattered from Stella's class into mine, the way roaches find your apartment after your neighbor fumigates.
