Pausing each month to make my student loan payment, I like to reflect on the things it has enabled me to both experience and learn.
Today I’m remembering living on campus, minding my own business on battle.net (hey guys, remember 2005?) and being interrupted by a knock at the door.
For those of you who do remember 2005, you know exactly what the girl on the other side of the door looked like, down to the tan Ugg boots.
"Hi… do you have a spoon?"
Somehow prepared for the question, I tell her no without a seconds hesitation. Something about feeding strays.
This was followed by the whitest of white girl scoffs. ”Who the fuck doesn’t have a spoon?!” she muttered as she stomped away on what could’ve been a very promising sheep.
Say what you will about college, but it most definitely prepares you for dealing with end users.
