Go home and grow up, then come back.

By Scott Tibbs, September 10, 2010

I am taking a class this semester for fun, to learn about a subject that interests me. When I got home from class on Labor Day, I found chewing gum attached to my pants, which had rubbed off from the seat in the lecture hall.

If you are a student at Indiana University, you are a legal adult and you should be mature enough to take care of yourself. This is not seventh grade, or even high school. You are more than old enough to know better than to stick your gum onto your chair. It is a disgusting, immature and completely selfish thing to do. You should be ashamed of yourself.

I should not have to point this out. IU students are legal adults and should know better than this. Most of them are. Some are not. If you are not enough of an adult to know you should not stick your chewing gum to the bottom of your chair, you are not enough of an adult to attend classes at a research institution such as IU.

You should drop out, go home and come back after you grow up. We don't want your kind here.
