What do you hate at work?

What should I be digressing about?

In junior high several classes assigned all kinds of book home work that we were supposed to keep in special journals we'd turn in at the end of the semesters. It was supposed to be this hefty part of the grade but I just didn't want to do them. When it came time to contemplate if I'd actually go through with the assignments I realized I could just cheese the system and not have to worry about it.

For the entire term the teachers would keep telling me how I was hurting my grades and/or going to fail because of it. I took it in stride and when it came time to total the final point tallies, all I could do was smirk as they realized that I had more than made up for it by stepping up my acquisition of in-class participation points. You know, quizzes, answering/asking extra questions, volunteering to help clean up, that sort of thing.

That reminds me of my senior year. My english teacher HATED me as a student (but not as a person!) so I decided to take a drama class as an elective. Drama counted towards a semester of english... so my teacher's threat of "If you don't pass this semester you don't graduate." -Oh, but I'm taking Drama right now too, and I'm passing that. "You know, you're a smart young man, just lazy... but at least you know how to be lazy and still get by. That won't work your whole life though."

It was good times.

I hate work at my work. I'd rather just socialize with friends and wonder around the maze of cubes playing Marco Pollo. =)

What work? ^_^

I guess you could count college as work, but I love my courses and my new campus :)
