Quote of the Week

I'm sitting in the Housing Office, located near an entrance to the main academic campus. A young man comes in:

YM: Excuse me, is the Spanish department in this building?

Me: No, it's in Wasatch Hall.

YM: Where the heck is that?

It is at this time that I begin to wonder, yet again, how some people get into college. Did he really just ask me where the "heck" a building is? In college? It's not like he's 12. He looks old enough to use real words in a grown-up conversation...Maybe he's been driving around campus for the last 30 minutes, looking in vain for the newly-relocated foreign language department. But still. Please don't ask me where the "heck" anything is.
