Crying rooms aren’t enough?

leave a comment »

Oh,  wait.   Now you  have donkeys to help you cope with stress,  and crying rooms you can hide in when you still fail miserably.   Over the last few years,  furry and feathered friends of various sorts have appeared on campus at a number of colleges before exam week.  Students seem to think it’s a great idea.

My parents wouldn’t have minded if I had paused to pet someone’s dog,  but I expect spending study time with a therapy donkey would have resulted in a thunderous “Why aren’t you studying?!” from them.  If I had gone to a crying room, they would have disowned me.  If you are still having crying jags and the soft equivalent of temper tantrums at age 18,  you are a warped snowflake and quite possibly will never catch up.  That is great news for my young family members who will be competing against you for the rest of your unhappy life.

Cry closet?

leave a comment »

If you must have access to a  cry closet  during final exams,  you are not only a pathetic college student,  but also a rather pitiful human being.    How on earth can a sobbing student function in the real world,  competing against people made of far sturdier stuff?

Does the University of Utah want these poor creatures to fail when they graduate,  or  is it unconcerned with whether they fail even sooner?
