    And after they pay they leave their care in front of the pump while they go in and buy a Big Gulp.

    Speaking of which, the constant need for people to eat and drink kind of drives me crazy, too. Do you really need to eat a bag of Doritos in the library?

    Teenagers that see the dryer and dishwasher cycles are done and then wait to be told to empty them..... "Oh what? Did you want me to do that?"

    And putting dirty dishes in the sink letting the food dry. Mac and cheese is the worst. Takes a sand blaster to get it off. NASA ought to use it as some sort of adhesive sealant.

    It may be that your proffs are more in touch with the outside world than you realize. Your furture bosses are not likely to cancil work the day after the Superbowl so in actuality the proffs are getting you ready for life.

    Sorry to be such a killjoy/old fart/"back when I was your age...." type.
    Was just going through backreading in this thread when it got topped.

    Now that I'm one of those who have to work the day after the Super Bowl my opinion hasn't changed from my rant filled college postings of 5 years ago. I still hate those professors that scheduled big midterms on the days after holidays or major events. And at least in the real world I always have the option to take a vacation day if I choose.

    Getting old sucks, Matt. That much will never change.

    At least being an adult allows you some freedom to pick and choose your time off.

    People who still refer either downtown stadium as "Riverfront Stadium".

    People who do not bathe and/or apply deodorant before attending a day game at the GABP.

    People who remember Ickey Woods but not James Brooks.

    People who take forever the board the Southbank Shuttle after the games because someone in their group doesn't have the correct amount.

    As a add-on to that, telling a teenager to do any of these things and greeted with an exasperated sigh and a "I'll get it later, don't worry, I really will".

    And then they don't.

    Guys in big trucks who both tailgate AND use their brights behind little cars. One of these days I'm going to snap, follow one of 'em home, and twist their lips off.

    My oldest boy is really good at that. And he somehow thinks I'm going to accept "I forgot". They never seem to forget when it's something that's important and pertains to them.

    I've developed a behavior that brings them down to earth. I walk back to the laundry room and trip the circuit breaker to their room killing all power. Really pees them off if they are on-line, doing gaming, etc. I tell them that when they fold those three baskets of laundry and do the dishes I'll restore power.
