Today I was leaving my building on my way to a meeting, and a student stopped me and said, "Excuse me, where are the stairs? I need to get downstairs to 100-something."
I said, ". . . there's no basement in this building, so you're already as far downstairs as you can go! What room are you looking for again?"
She: "101. Or 124. Or . . . I don't know."
Me: "Um. Is it for a class? Which one?"
She: "I don't remember."
Me: "Do you remember the subject?"
Me: "Good luck."
Honestly . . . knowing neither the room number nor the course number and not even what the general gist of the class you're looking for? Why?
