kvetch: v.1 (Yiddish) to complain To the girl who started crying on her way out of the advising building: Walking through a campus tour group may not have been the best advertisement for UNC.

kvetch: v.1 (Yiddish) to complain To the couple I saw holding hands while going for a run: Really? To the guy who handed me a CHiPS show flyer and then offered me a baby: Are you for real?

Dear manager sitting behind the bench: Please don’t look utterly disgusted to be sitting behind Roy and the boys; there are about 10,000 girls in line to replace you. First, Pluto’s not a planet, now there is a new zodiac sign. Maybe the world really is coming to an end.

To the drunk man on the J Bus at 9 a.m. that asked if the next stop was Wine Street and Colombia Liquor: I guess it is never too early for Thirsty Thursday? The UNC backcourt got a B on the DTH midseason report card? I guess grade inflation really is a problem around here.
