I keep having to stop doing my own personal doodling so that I can help the boss with her personal errands and favors.

Maybe their combined inadequacies could add up to some kind of mutant half-adequacy.

Overly loud singing guy behind you at church attempting harmonies.

My peeve of today:

"Dear Professor [oad],
Hi, I'm going to be in your American lit class this quarter, but I have another class that starts before yours ends, so I'm going to be missing the last hour of your class every week for a month. Just wanted to make sure that was ok!
Thanks!

I got one just the other day: "I didn't realise I was enrolled in this class until today. Did I miss anything in the last 5 weeks?"
