I’m in my last year of college. And I ordered my last textbook a month ago. Still no arrival. That’s not a big deal because the publisher has only just started shipping them out, so I don’t expect anyone else has it yet either.
Except for one thing:
Since I ordered it online, there’s going to be some additional wait time. And since NOBODY that I go to school with does anything short of procrastinate when it comes to being prepared for the semester (waiting until the START to buy the required books), there is a good chance that everyone else will have their book before me. That means it is unlikely that the professor will cut me a break when we start getting assigned problems from the text.
Now I’m all pissed off because I’m probably going to have to ask other students to borrow their book for 5 minutes to copy down questions. When you think about it, I take ‘being prepared’ more seriously than most people, and yet now it may prove to be my undoing. It’s all basically a sick, twisted, and ironic situation that I’m in, and it costs me 15 dollars extra for shipping. WHY do I deserve such inconvenience!!!???
