More College Stupidity

It was discovered that a college student was writing down the ISBN numbers and the pricing of his required textbooks. His goal was to then search the web for the same book but at a better price. Sounds like a smart kid. Unfortunately, his college didn’t like it. They kicked him out of the bookstore and said, “we discourage people who are taking down alot of notes.”

To top it off, the headline for this story in the school’s online newspaper reads “Coop Discourages Notetaking in Bookstore.”

It should read: “Coop discourages student from finding better prices on overpriced textbooks.”

I hope those kids wise up and stop buying everything possible from their bookstore. They should learn a lesson.
