A thing on the Brown campus was recently changed in favor of a new way of doing that thing. When asked their opinions on the slight change in procedure for doing a thing, many students were confused at first and then begrudgingly accepted the minute change that would in no way alter their day-to-day lives.
“At first, I was like ‘What? They’re doing this thing this way now?’,” said Ken Landers ’13. “I was kind of upset because the thing had changed, and I was used to the old thing. But now I’m incredibly apathetic. My mindset has adapted, and I forgot about the old way I used to do that thing that I almost never did.”
“I always used to do that thing in that other way!” Kim Gittman ’14 said while nonchalantly doing several things at once on items that hadn’t even been invented a few years ago but are completely normal to use now. “Now I have to do it a different way. And I guess I’ll be okay with that soon.”
“Okay. I’m okay with it right now,” Gittman said after pausing for a few seconds.
In response to the short-lived and relaxed backlash that was followed by total apathy, Brown’s administrators assured students that more small details about how the school is run would change in the near future. This brought about an annoyed grunt and, later, an accepting grunt.
