Return of the library nazis (aka library stewards)

Follow-up to Waste of time…..? from Mina's blog

Today we got handed a little leaflet entitled We know revision time can be stressful. No shit Sherlock! Does anyone know how many of those leaflets they actually have???? I saw him shuffling through a whole sheaf of them before he handed out that one!

  1. I don't understand why people insist on giving out 'revision propagana' at this time of year. Everybody at this university should know their own preferred way of revising by now. Bombarding people with leaflets that say 'Exams are here' in big letters is just going to make students more stressful. We had a 'revision lecture' in history this week, and are suposed to be having 'revision seminars' (which I'm deliberately missing). I mean what is the pont??

  2. The point my dear…...is to make the people who haven't actually revised yet (us) feel worse and the people who have revised (them) feel better.

    The worst part is when the "them"s come up to you before/after the seminar/during your 3 hour "lunch" break at Xanana's and go "hi Mina! How's Revision going? I was just wondering if you could explain the Median Voter Theorem and its implications for the manifestos of the political parties to me cos I don't understand" at which point I reply…"to be quite honest, I have no idea what you're talking about" . Then guess what? They begin to map out to you in excruciating detail not only what the damned thing was, but who developed it and when. I mean COME ON!!!!!
