Yet another overheard conversation at the Bookstore

I feel compelled to point out, again, that this is a university bookstore.

Young female to her friend:  I thought Withering Heights would be like, like, Jane Austen, but it was totally, like, y'know, not.

Friend:  Yeah.  Totally not.

As a side note, she did say "Withering Heights".  That was not a misprint.

Earlier that day I had been thinking how I missed being a teacher.  This helped me miss it a little less.

As another side note, the way the kids around here talk makes me think this should be required viewing for all students.  At least, it seems like something of an antidote to me.
