This was an actual conversation… While shopping, I ran into an old high school friend that I haven’t seen well, since high school.
“Yes, it’s me, Amanda. How are you? Its been so long! What have you been up to since high school?”
“Well, I’m a hairdresser, still living in (our hometown), I married (the high school football captain). What about you, what do you do now?”
“Well, I married (my high school/middleschool sweetheart) and I work in Student Affairs at Bridgewater State University.”
“Wait, that really happens?”
…. (staring with a very confused face – is she asking about people marrying the person they dated in high school?)… “What really happens?”
“Well, I guess it happens if it’s your work. What do you have to do when they get caught?”
… (I think I get what she thinks I do, but not quite sure)… “Who gets caught?”
“Well, the students and professors – do they lose their jobs and get kicked out of school, are you the one that gets to investigate it?”
yes, she definitely thinks I handle extra-marital affairs with students! I thought it was hard explaining to my mom what I do… this one was much worse!!
Just a little Student Affairs story to lift your spirits today!! Enjoy your day!!
