1000 Things We Hate #206: Scooting School Desks

8 12 2011

Going for that CLASSIC Look

“Okay everyone! Time to circle up!”

THESE ARE DEATH WORDS.  Okay, obviously death words are words like “death,” “dead,” “fatal,” or “lycanthropy.”  Nevertheless, these words are THE BANE OF MY EXISTENCE.  Why? Because they foretell what is to come.

Now, I don’t mind getting into a circle for class.  It promotes group sharing and camaraderie for all of the students.  Facing forward all eyes towards the teacher can be a little intimidating and most likely leads to a lecture-based class.  Which is all fine and good if you do not require a discussion.

So, my Lesbian and Gay Lit class is a dream.  One, interesting topic.  Two, we read some pretty powerful texts.  Three, I feel like I must be experiencing some terrible dream [read nightmare] at the beginning of the class.  We MUST circle up.  We respond to each other with the professor at the front of the class leading us into that wonderful dandelion field of knowledge.  Nevertheless, the first two minutes of the class are grueling.


In order to circle up, we must move our desks.  Unfortunately, many people are not kind and decide to push/scoot their desks across the tile floor.  This creates a “BRRRUUOHHHHH BRUHHHRRRHHH BrrOUHGHHHH” noise.  That noise is TERRIBLE on its own, but when you have 15 people doing it at the same time, IT IS AWFUL.

What everyone SHOULD be doing with their desks!

I just do not understand what is going on!  Seriously, how fucking difficult is it for you to PICK UP YOUR DESK.  Are you quadriplegic!?  DO YOU HAVE NO SOUL!?  I don’t get embarrassed easily… so, I don’t get embarrassed in this situation.  BUT, I feel really terrible for all of the classrooms next door that are earnestly starting their classes off with “JRBBRRREGRGUUHGG BRREUUGGGHHRRRRRR!”

The thing is, I can totally hear other classes that do this, FROM TWO STORIES DOWN.  How fucking disruptive is that!?  Seriously!

So, take your wimpy little catgutmuscle arms and lift those goddamn desks and save us all of the painful noises that sound like someone put a thousand toothbrushes made of metal into a meat grinder and blender simultaneously!


They may be entirely unrelated aside from “scoot” being in them, but check out this 1000 Things We Hate on Scooters!
