The point of no return,.

"Yo, can I still pass your class?"

"Who are you?"
*rifles through grade/attendance book*

"You last came to class on September 15. You've missed three papers, five quizzes and the midterm. No, you can't pass at this point."

"Can you sign my drop slip?"

"Add/drop period was over three weeks ago."

"Fuck, man. What am I supposed to do now?"

"Take the 'F,' and work harder when you repeat the class next semester?"

  3. "Yo" is not a good way to begin a conversation. But at least in Japanese it's a way to end a sentence. As in "You can't pass this class, yo!"

    At least he didn't try to impress you with his sense of self-entitlement.

  4. "What am I supposed to do now?"

    Get a job digging ditches, or flipping burgers, or working on motorcycles, until you figure out that:
    A. You don't want to spend the rest of your life doing those things, and
    2. What exactly it is that you want to do with the rest of your life.
