Overheard: Trouble at the Turnstiles

Written by

Locked up!

Locked up!

Two men in fancy suits walk into Lerner. One man passes through the turnstiles with ease. The other is left stuck on the side of the public – the side of the plebians. This will not do.

Stuck man to desk: “Can’t I go through!? I’m not an alumni here, but I DID go to Harvard.”

He DID go to Harvard. The nerve! Keeping a man of his quality locked up behind those stupid metal bars… He paid good money for his education! Couldn’t that woman tell by his perfectly coiffed hair, his teeth sparkling white teeth, his overbearing air of dickishness? If he wanted to be treated this way he would have gone to Cornell.

Lerner will be hearing from his lawyers.

    A real Harvard graduate would not say "an alumni."

    Does the Bwog know who I am? Who my father is? I am an upstanding member of this community, and I will not stand being lambasted in a public forum by sniveling undergrads. Take this down immediately.
