Let’s face it, being a student is hard work. You have to sit in class for most of the day, and then when you’re done with that you have hours of homework to do. And then let’s not even talk about exams. Sometimes you just can’t be bothered to do the boring, simple tasks in life, so your laziness takes over!
Let’s see how these people dealt when the going got tough...
Redditor Albuyeh says: “Used to have one of those ‘clap on, clap off’ lights in my room. I hated clapping so I just made an audio recording of me clapping and mapped it to one of the programmable keys on my keyboard.”
Bunnylebowski1 says, “In college, we hooked up those hamster water bottles to our headboards with a wire so that we could drink from them when hungover. It enabled us to just open our mouth instead of having to move any other part of our body. We didn’t get much water out of it.”
For reals though, these kids have got a brilliant entrepreneurial idea here if they can work out the kinks!
User rodereau says, “Had to write a paper on Existentialism. Had to write a paper on Billy Budd. Wrote one paper on the existentialist aspects of Billy Budd and turned copies in for each for each course.”
This is so simple, yet so genius. College students, take note.
Redditor tiersy says, “For a mock English Literature exam I only wrote an intro, plus the first and second paragraphs in marvelous detail. I numbered the two pages I had written ‘1 of 6’ and ‘2 of 6’ respectively. I never wrote the other pages and simply handed in my 2 pages. The teachers blamed one another for losing the bulk of my exam paper.”
We just hope the teachers didn’t ask tiersy to reprint the other pages.
“When I was in college I had a one pot coffee maker. I set it on my nightstand next to my bed. The night before I would add my coffee grounds, water in the reservoir and put my mug under the spout. My alarm would go off in the morning, I would sit up hit the on button for my coffee and then go back to sleep so I could wake up next to hot coffee like I was in a Folgers commercial.”
User jonas91 says, “I was on my way home from school, I had to walk 20 minutes from the subway and it was pouring rain. Just outside the subway is a pizza place which I know does home deliveries by car. I went in, told them I wanted a pizza delivered to my home address and since I’m already here, why not deliver me home as well? The owner told me they only deliver food and not people. But after some discussion, both me and the pizza arrived dry and safe.”
