Student Brings Typewriter to Lecture, Has to Leave

Back in my day, we just took a pen and notepad to class for taking down notes or doodling. These days, it's about notebooks (and that'd be of the laptop variety). Nearly everyone can type faster than they can write by hand, so naturally using a computer is a better class-aid.

But what happens if you don't have access to a laptop for a day, but still prefer the old QWERTY experience? You bring a typewriter, of course.

That's exactly what some young student did, much to the amusement of his peers. We can't exactly make out what the professor giving the lecture says to the student, but we're fairly certain that he asks him to "mute" the sound of his typewriter (mistaking it for a noisy laptop). Ding!

    Pff, the schools these days ... surfing for porn while the teacher is in front of you babbling for 1 hour, priceless. At least the boredom problem is solved ...

    I smell yet another lawsuit on this one... "You discriminated against my client because of his inability to pay for a laptop computer..." Not that I agree with the suit, but it's interesting that the school would allow or at least look the other way for all the laptops. (Not all typewriters are as loud as this one.)

  • OMG! Now that is hilarious.

    Years ago, Typewriters were used in certain classrooms. Admittedly they aren't too quiet, but they aren't loud enough to warrant being asked to leave.

    Although in a lecture hall, depending on where in the audience the student was sitting, it could amplify the sound of the typewriter. :D

    Teachers who are old enough to remember having typewrites in the schools instead of computers would probably laugh about this one and call the professor a rediculous old fart.
