  • wrong bathroom, or so he thought

    The campus I live on gives certain janitorial jobs to those living on it to avoid hiring someone else to do it and thus saving money. My job is to clean the outside bathrooms. So the other day I was walking across the court yard to clean them and since the mens restroom was closest I headed for that first. As I approached it I heard someone inside using it so I changed direction and headed for the girls. At that very moment a man walked by and said “did you just almost go into the boys room? Are you confused?” He laughed, passed me and was gone before I could correct his assumption that I was an idiot. Hana – TX

  • i'm adopted

    In high school I was very quick to talk and slow to think. Once, I was riding in a car with friends, and we started talking about adoptions. I came up with the not-so-brilliant idea that adopted children could never have the same level of relationship with their parents as biological children. I said this with full confidence and began to argue with my friends. One girl, Megan, was especially fierce in her argument with me. I repeated my points and supporting ideas, talking louder and faster. And then it happened. Megan said, “Micah, I’m adopted!” Then we went silent. And yes, it was an awkward silence. A man with a theory is always at the mercy of a man with an experience. I was wrong. Micah the Admin
