Mind Boggling, Truly Mind Boggling

*

So there I was....trying to concentrate in my English class. I became a bit fidgety and pulled out my phone to check the time.....maybe I was texting, so sue me. Anyways, as I was conspicuously texting under my desk I felt a glob of stickiness and almost gasped in disgust!

Gum!!!!!

There was gum under my desk. Now this wasn't ancient gum that dates back to the 90's. That I could handle, that I had seen before. No, this gum was fresh. I would say, one to two days old.

Am I not a college student?

Am I not attending a University comprised of students 18 years and older?

Then why, pray tell, do I find a chewable substance stuck under my desk as if a three year old had possessed the seat? This was mind boggling. The person sitting in my seat could not stand up and walk to the garbage to dispose of his/her gum. Heaven forbid he/she rip a paper from his/her notebook and stick his/her gum to it. No, why do this when you can simply stick it under the desk like a juvenile delinquent  who carves their name into the wall?

I apologize for the rant.

But please, join in expressing the mind-boggling occurrences that plague the lives of Spinsters who are just trying to make it through yet another day of school and work....

Love,
The always baffled...
