I've Been Admitted to Law School. The Question is...Can I Survive?

Narkoleptomania

Thursday, September 29, 2005

It always amazes me when people come into the library - a relatively quiet area, I think - then proceed to make the loudest noises possible while they arrange themselves by dropping their casebooks from what appears to be a height of three or four feet unto their desks, then they boot their laptops which has its volume turned on high and then, just when you think the shuffling's died down, their cell-phone goes off once, they appear to turn the ringer off, then 3 minutes later it goes off again, this time on vibrate but it seems that they put their phone in a bag containing at least 200 marbles which causes it to make an endearing racket, then of course it takes them 4 rings to locate the phone, and this time they have to answer, only we're in the basement so reception sucks...so what do they do? They scream at the top of their voice telling the other person that they can't hear them and they're in the library and can the person hold on until they get outside and call them back.

Of course they could have just silenced the ringer and gone outside to call them back...but, of course, they don't.

Amazing.
