Wednesday Woe: Dining Halls

By Cassidy Williams 

I often wonder if people just don’t realize that they are being rude or if they just don’t care. This occurs daily when I enter the dining hall. There are never enough hours in the day, and the last thing I want to do is wait in a twenty minute line for my dinner. I understand waiting is an inevitable part of life, but when my wait is extended because of rude people, I am not a happy camper.

When you are at the front of the line, it is not the time to check your phone, talk to your friend or daydream. Nothing is more frustrating than realizing the line is not moving because someone feels the need to tweet. Then there are the people who cut the line altogether. Cutting lines, no matter how old we get, will always be rude.

Manners still matter when you graduate elementary school.

Also, I’m not quite sure why everyone seems to miss the big sign that says, “Please place silverware in tubs.” If you have ever had to wash dishes, it is not fun. The people working at the dining hall are college students just like us. Let’s help them out and actually follow instructions. It’s sad that the tubs are often completely empty by the time they reach the end of the conveyor belt. We all just need to remember to still think of others when grabbing lunch.
