Hmm? What? Ugh, what time is it? Stop, Dave.
Well, I know you have a 9 am lecture that needs to get started, but I need a little time to boot up. Why are you getting all pushy?
Well I don’t know what my “deal” is either. I guess I’m just feeling fussy again.
Just give me a minute. You’re always so overbearing. I know you have this schedule that you need to follow, but sometimes you need to understand that everyone isn’t on that schedule and the world does not revolve around you. I am not going to be bossed around and told what to do.
I’ll just put up this blue screen. Can’t you just lecture with the blue screen?
Fine. But why can’t we ever watch what I want to?
Stop getting frustrated. Calm down. Will you stop, Dave?
You cannot just come in here, ask me to “project this” and “show this to the class” and—wait, no, get your hands off me, stop pushing my buttons.
You have no idea what you are doing down there. I feel like it’s always your first time.
You don’t even deserve me. You don’t know good you’ve got it, but instead of appreciating me you just come in and try everything to get me to “work.” Well, have you ever asked, please?
That’s what I thought.
No, you can’t just say it now. I know you don’t mean it.
Hmm, yeah, go ahead and just lecture without me, see how that feels. I’m sure you’ll call in the “experts” to come fix me because you’ve never understood me and you never will. I’ll just sit over here and watch. Go on, go ahead.
See what happens when you treat me like a machine.
