"Hey, do you have a pen or a pencil I could borrow," a hulking figure of student sitting next to me asks.
Without a word, I hand the pen I'm currently using out toward him.
Thinking I'm giving him my one and only writing instrument, he frantically retracts, "No that's okay! I didn't mea..."
"I've got others," I calmly respond.
"Oh cool, thanks," he bellows as he grabs it with a big hand.
Just ten minutes earlier a blonde in the class asked the same question to her neighbor. But what really came out of her mouth was, "In the 2 hours that it takes to apply makeup and get my hair ready, I just didn't have 15 extra seconds to dig a stinking pen out of a kitchen drawer."
After all, it's only community college...
