Hello! I was educated as an adult.
I learnt a lot and had a lot of laughs.

My humorous academic moment is:
During the final exam week of my Adult Basic Education
course most of the students were looking forward to the
last day and the student celebration at the local tavern.
Me I mostly spent the week preparing for the math test
that I had to pass or not graduate.
Fortunately my math test was the last scheduled test of the week so I had more time to prepare.
Unfortunately I was the last person to show up at the tavern because I needed ever last second to complete the test.
The only available seat at the tavern happened to be at the table of two students who I had always seen as math wizards. The first 3 rounds were mostly spent watching these 2 guys watch the waitress go up and down the stairs and then listening to them talk about how much they really liked her. But for some strange reason during the forth round out of my mouth the words -
“Oh ya I love math” - blurted out.
All the students just stared at me because
they had seen me struggling with math many times.
So I figured I had better make it seem like one of my jokes
so I then said “and it’s not just the booze talking.”
I wound up getting a C+ on my math final and I do believe
that the plus was because the teacher knew education
wasn’t just a joke to me. Cheers!

High School...the best 6 years of my life.

This was back at the Grey in the early 70's....

During noon hour sports, the football we were tossing became lodged in the steel beam running up the wall next to the radiators. A classmate, who we will call JB, climbed up the beam and grabbed the radiator cover for balance.

The covers were installed upside down and when JB grabbed on, the cover pulled off creating a domino effect all along the rads running through the gym. The demolition ended when the rads reached the water pipes which burst and proceeded to flood the gym.

Quite a scene...people running, girls screaming, and the noise was incredible.

Mr Horton was not a happy man !!

Hello! That sure sounded like it took the boredom
out of a school day.
Since my school days I have learnt that every thing
happens for a reason. You mentioned that the covers
were installed upside down. Would the whole thing of
happened if the covers were properly installed?
Or maybe it happened because cupid works in mysteries
ways – you met one of the girls that went screaming
out of the gym and you’s still have a good laugh about it
ever now and then. Cheers! And thank you for the reply.

When I took my Cosmetology Class in Calgary we had the first and second floor of the building. Hamburger U was on the upper levels.

One day there was 4 or 5 of us going up to the second floor on the elevator. I think we were coming in from a smoke or something. So we are standing there in our white wrap around dress uniforms and just before the door closed in walks Ronald MacDonald!

We had been joking around and as soon as he stepped in everyone shut up. No one made eye contact and I remember looking down at the floor and seeing his big shoes.

We all stepped off on the second floor and walked into class. It struck me as so funny! Elevator etiquette at it's highest!

I did suggest to the girls after that we could use a dark ash to remove some of the brightness in his hair.....
