Sometimes College Students Do Not Use Common Sense
I work in a college with a relatively small campus of about 50 acres, yet I regularly see students skateboarding. It is a pain in a neck at times to avoid these kids who can easily walk from one building to the next. Today I saw a kid trying to do that in a corrider that is narrow since it is adjacent to a construction site. I asked him nicely to just carry his skateboard through this passageway. He did that for about 10 seconds and after I turned my head he started to sidewalk surf. C'mon guys, there is a time and place for skateboarding, but please don't do it on a crowded campus.
I also observed students wearing shorts and flip-flops in the winter. I am not their father and just can' stop them.
What can I say? A little common sense and courtesy go a long way in this world.
