a giant waste of cell phone minutes

Moot Court tryout packets came out today. Two guys in my Crim Pro class who I can only describe as "James Spader in Pretty in Pink-esque" spent about five minutes debating whether to pick up the packet before or after class...since, as one put it, "I want to see the prompt before deciding whether or not I want to take the time trying out"...because, you know, trying out for Moot Court should be regarded with the same care as the decision to drop the A-Bomb on Hiroshima. They go get the packets, and one of the Spader Clones makes a phone call during our break in the middle of class to one of his cronies with (I presume) a false sense of superiority who just doesn't happen to be in Crim Pro with the rest of the pretentious crowd.

"Hey, [friend], I just wanted to let you know that the Moot Court packets are out, so you can go pick one up. They're in the office that's on the side of the building next to our Contracts classroom."

Now, the date/time for the distribution of these packets was mentioned in a meeting a week ago (and spread around by the 100 people who attended this meeting), as well as included in at least two e-mails sent out in the last week. People know about this. This does not require a phone call to come up here immediately and get a packet, because YOU HAVE THREE DAYS TO PICK UP THE BLOODY PACKET. Honestly, one day will not make that big of a difference at this point, since no one will even start on this until after LR&W briefs are due. So do the rest of us a favor and chill out, Captain Competitive.

I promise I won't even look at it until halfway thru Spring Break...
