So here’s one of the first thing that happened to me at community college:
As high school told me, it’s always good to be about ten minutes early. But when I got to the room my first class, it was dark and empty. My bladder was full so I figured I could use the bathroom to kill time.
When a guy uses the urinal, there’s some kind of rule we all naturally know. If there are more than 3 urinals, you take the ones furthest to the sides so the next guy doesn’t have to stand right next to you. I chose the urinal furthest away from the door, so someone is even less likely to take the one next to me.
Well, my plan didn’t work out. This stocky middle aged man who came in after me took the urinal right next to me. There were four open ones, why’d he choose the one closest to a person?
“Isn’t first days great?” The guy said. I could tell his mind was a little bit off, but oh well.
“Umm… I guess so.” I replied trying to not get distracted so I can leave sooner.
“I remember my first day of college here,” the man said, “I came home and realized I forgot to feed my gold fish. Poor guy had to go straight down the drain.”
It wasn’t long that I realized I got pee on my shoes. I was trying to hold in a laugh, this guys awkwardness was kinda funny.
Once I finished, I quickly walked over to wash my hands. The man still wanted to talk, but he was all the way on the other side of the bath room. I have no idea what he was talking about but I just kept saying “uh-huh!”
I realized that as he was talking to me, he was leaning back to see me. I guess it’s natural for humans to want to see who they’re talking to. This guy was leaning so far back, I could see where the pee was coming from… and going, but I don’t think it was going where he originally aimed. Why was I noticing this?
Quickly, I finished up in the bathroom and said “bye” to the man hoping he didn’t think I was rude.
The class was still empty, but the door was unlocked, so I walked in and turned on the light. The inside looked like high school class rooms, but without any decorations. I took a seat and waited.
One by one people drizzled in. I was thinking they’d be early but they weren’t. It was finally 10:00 but the professor still wasn’t in there. At 10:10, the door opened and the man I saw in the bathroom walked in. Turns out that awkward man is my professor.
