Today's Students # One.
Huttonian was pontificating to a student about how he saw developments in the Middle East outside the staff coffee room when the young man's mobile rang:
'Excuse me' He said politely. 'I must take that call. It's from China'
You know I wished I had lines like that when I was at the Uni.
And compared with my time the youngsters are attentive, appreciative and (extraordinary) well dressed. We must have been a rabble; sniggering our way through lectures, cutting most of them, minimal respect for our teachers, and how scruffy!
Two students came up to me afterwards and thanked me! I would have rather died than done that.
