One step at a time

Overheard as I was leaving campus today: A group of students are waiting in the hallway for their class to begin (given the room they were outside of, likely A&P).

Young woman to group: I thought our test was today!

Chorus of agreement all around.

Young woman #2: Yeah, me too! I've been studying like mad!

YW #1: Yeah, me, too. I studied like crazy all last night! What a waste!

YW#2: Really! I mean, the test isn't until next week, after [Easter] break. We wasted all that time studying for nothing. That sucks!

Chorus of agreement all around.

You must realize that a university cannot educate you. You must do that for yourself, although a college or university is the place where it is likely that you can study most efficiently.

Don't you just want to crack their heads together when you hear something like that?

Sheesh.

S2:  "You're right.  Let's get lattes."

Sometimes that IS exactly the right answer...

"Dude. You got wasabi in my science."

I really wish I heard more of this conversation. This wasn't said in an angry tone of voice; it was matter-of-fact and almost sad.

It could be adapted to a good threat.  "Dude, don't make me get all wasabi up in your science!"  Sounds scary, but means essentially nothing.

Unfortunately, I think conjugate gives good advice.

It sounds like "you got peanut butter in my chocolate" from Reese's commercials.

Yes.

Why was this said in a mournful tone?  Surely the delicious bite of wasabi can only improve one's science!

Overheard on my midwestern campus:

S1: "What's the capital of Minnesota?"
S2: "Milwaukee!"

I'm thinking your students are probably a pair of native Chicagoans.  Midwestern by geography but not by any cultural or social sense of identification.  Minnesota would be as relevant to them as Guam.

In my opinion, Secundem_artem is precisely correct. 

I think secundem_artem, rather, has hit the nail on the head.

So Guam is the capital of Minnesota?
