A) Going to a commuter campus means very challenging to find parking. So your old ass has to walk a lot farther. Which, come to think of it, is probably best for it. Moving on.
B) There is nothing like walking around a college campus to make you feel old as dirt.
C) I was picking up my actual library card at the SJSU main library and the infant student worker behind the counter went "mumble mumble mumble LIS?". I stared at her blankly, and said "Um...", to which she replies "mumble mumble library mumble mumble INFORMATION mumble SCIENCE?". I thought she was asking about whether the right program was going on my card, or something, so I said "ah, yes, LIS? That's...fine?". She then gets a bit frothy and says, "NO! I was asking if you liked the program!".
All I could think was, "Young lady, you are going to HAVE to speak up!"
*We did, for the record, have a nice conversation about the program after I recovered enough to joke about my lack of caffeine*
