Into The Home Stretch

The term paper, she is done and handed in. Le Thesis, she chugs along. I've got one final paper, one final exam, and a final quiz in Hebrew. I think I may be able to make it through this semester alive after all.

And, to my amusement, someone left a paddle at the Key Desk last night for me to find this morning. It's one of those big, solid chunks o' wood whose sole purpose in life is to elicit the response: "Thank you, sir! May I have another?" I've had it prominently on display this morning, and strangely enough, I've had much less whining and complaining than usual. I recommend this approach to everyone who has to deal with customers. A paddle on display saves much discussion.

I'm going to need a HUGE paddle to keep next to the register at Nelyo's! I wish I'd known about this when I worked at The Piece....

Hmmm. Check with your local college fraternities?

If I went to UMBC, where they used to broadcast chess matches on closed circuit TVs in the Student Union, I might come back with a coaxial cable and an old TI-83...maybe tie them up with cable and bonk them over the head with the TI?

*wonders why I didn't go to a normal school that has parties and such*
