attention: pathetic guy

OK, I understand the semester is almost over. I also realize a number of people are at the end of the law school career (Hello GW). People are busy studying, papers are due, not a lot of people are sleeping all that much. But there is no excuse to fall asleep in class, even if Civil Pretrial Litigation isn't the most exciting class there is.

This dude tonight nearly fell out of his seat in class. His neighbor woke him up, Sleepy waved the good Samaritan off and went back to sleep. I mean, he was leaning way over in his seat. He then put his head down and snoozed for the next hour. Everyone was looking around the room, snickering and laughing until things took a turn for the worse.

Apparently, he wet his pants. Not a little. A lot. His pants were visibly wet and there was a puddle on his seat. Never ever, under any circumstances, sit in the back row of room 418 in the second seat from the right. Ever. I suppose it would be in poor taste to post a photo of this guy, or mention him by name, but those photos exist and are out there.

Even though the class applauded for the professor, this guy did not wake up. Even though the class of close to 100 packed their belongings and left, this guy did not wake up. Apparently, according to somebody who left class after me, another classmate pointed out that this dude's pants were wet, prompting this genius to scream and run out of the room, urine dripping down his pants and onto the carpet.

Another shining example of the quality of the South Texas College of Law community.

UPDATE: The person whose name will not be mentioned by me only came to class because he couldn't miss another one, per ABA rules. But, in an ironic turn of events, since he was passed out, the role was passed right over his head and he did NOT sign the role. This is why booze and class don't mix.

I say if you pee your pants while sleeping in class you deserve to have your picture posted. How else will I know not to sit next to him next semester?

maybe he's trying to be a football "analyst" for ESPN...

He won't be here next semester because he's graduating, which is probably why he showed up to class wasted. Getting the party started early, that's all.

How is he going to graduate if he gets dropped?

I heard that he emailed the professor the following day to tell her that he forgot to sign the roll. I also heard he blamed it on cough medicine and showed up to ALL of his classes the following day.

I heard that a member of the alumni got a hold of his picture and name and sent it to other members of the alumni. That's not a good sign for future employment, at least in the United States.

It must just be law school that frowns on this behavior. I don't know a MBA student that hasn't done something similar. (Vomiting, falling out of chair, playing loud music on laptop during class, or ripping ass)

The only experience similar to this that I have is a fratboy having a bottle of Budweiser fall out of of his pocket and shatter on the floor, breaking the relative silence of a Business and Legal Spanish class. Although I think I felt worse for the flustered professor than that drunken STD-dealer.
