There are so many great people at UNC. But there are also some horrible ones. Ones that you should avoid at all costs. The Editorial Board presents: people you should steer clear of at UNC.
That guy in your POLI recitation. We all know him. He’s a first-year, but a sophomore by credit hours. He thinks he’s saying something revolutionary every time he answers the teaching assistant’s questions, but he’s really just repeating the exact same thing a woman said literally one minute ago. He thinks he’s the new Samuel Huntington, Francis Fukuyama and John Mearsheimer all wrapped up in the perfect pasty package. But he is not. He’s just a guy who needs to learn when to stop speaking (or, in these times, when to mute himself on Zoom).
People who still go to bars and parties DURING A PANDEMIC. We see your Instagram story. You’re not slick. Seven months ago, you were the public advocate for COVID-19 safety, and now you’re at He’s Not with 20 of your friends — none of whom are wearing a mask. News flash! We’re still in a pandemic!
People who don’t say thank you to the bus driver. The Chapel Hill Transit bus drivers are our heroes, especially now. They’re essential workers who are putting themselves at risk to take us where we need to go. The least you can do is thank them.
People who walk slowly for no reason. Class transitions are a war zone. In those brief, fleeting moments between lectures, all hell breaks loose. There are no laws. No common decency. Everybody is lost in their own world, forgetting there are hundreds of people around them who all have somewhere to be. This is not social hour! We only have 15 minutes to get from Phillips to Genome so please, move it along, people!
