20 minutes and $360.00 later I walked out of the university bookstore, and I still didn't have all of the books for the courses because a couple of them haven't come in yet. I'm officially terrified and ecstatic, thankyouverymuch.

  4. One of the things that was nice about being a grad student in music was that there weren't really any obscenely priced books to buy. It was their way of telling us that we wouldn't be making any money in the real world, so why gouge us on books?

  5. There is a special place in hell for the people who profit from the sale of college textbooks. Not the workers, but the owners of these rip-off emporiums. Those fuckers will be in a lower level of eternal damnation than Hitler and Stalin. When you sell your books back, they'll give you about five bucks. COCKSUCKERS!

  7. Todd,
    I had the mad urge to throw a hissy fit to rival Whitney Houston's bitchiest day, but I held out. As you said, it's not the workers' fault...just the fuckrags who own the place.

    Amanda,
    Amen.
