As winter quarter heads into its fifth week, freshman Meagan Farley has seemingly worn out her welcome with most of her friends. While the strife of being overworked has been a popular topic for many students, apparently some have taken it too far. “Only so many times can I sit there and listen to her bitch over how much reading she has to do or how late she stays up,” remarks a bored friend of Farley’s, Anna Romero.
In an intervention-style confrontation, Farley was taken aback by her friend’s annoyance. “You know what?” Farley reportedly exclaimed, “I’m sorry that I’m not entertaining you! From now on, I will ignore all of my problem sets—of which I have two to go finish whenever you’re done bitching at me—until you are perfectly satisfied! The next time you pull an all-nighter, you come enlighten me on some inspired topic!”
Watching Farley storm off in a rage, Romero gawked at a friend sitting close by, giving her a stare of disbelief. Her friend rolled her eyes, pained that she would have to hear Romero go on about Farley for the hundredth time this week.
