Overheard: Relaxing with Sandy

At least you’re ready for the next apocalypse…

The latest in small talk, overheard by a tipster at Starbucks:

 

“How was your hurrication?”

 

Nothing rejuvenates the soul quite like not leaving your building for two days (although you don’t necessarily need a hurricane for that).

    @Soo... Am I the only one disturbed by Columbia students’ nonchalance about the hurricane? Especially in the wake of such massive devastation in the region, I kind of wish there was more of a sense of urgency on campus to help out.

      @agreed NYT reports 38 dead in NYC alone

      I understand feeling nonchalant days ago, before we knew how bad it really was elsewhere, but by now BWOG should have its head out of Morningside Heights’ ass

      @Anonymous Truth, but there are still some Columbians heading down to volunteer with the relief effort. There are plenty of ways to volunteer, and Columbia students are organizing on Facebook. Go to the Red Cross website. Go to NYCService’s website. You also can check out places to help in Chinatown in particular here: http://www.ourchinatown.org/2012/11/01/volunteer-chinatown-seeks-volunteers-where-to-go/

      @Anonymous I think it stems from the faculty and administration’s nonchalance. If they were more willing to disrupt their own plans students would be too. With papers still due and no “real” excuse it’s difficult to figure out what’s correct. I think CU would do well to organize or encourage volunteering over fall break though.

    @Anonymous Hurrication is hardly original. Residents of New Orleans with financial means used that term when they couldn’t return to their homes.

    @Anonymous My hometown is destroyed. My friends’ homes are underwater, my family lost their car. Stop treating this like a fucking joke.
