Robert, a year one medical student shared the following funny
story with me. This is his story:
My first day in Abia State University was the happiest day.
Early morning, I entered the school compound, rushed to the notice
board. Fortunately, I found my name on medical list. I was ninth on
the list for those who get primary admission, through the screening
test. I jumped up in jubilation, swayed my hips and made a slow zigzag
movement-like a mad man.
I immediately moved over to admission office to get clearance
to pay my acceptance fee. Sir, I saw my name on the result, I want to
know the next step. What discipline? The man asked.I thought he was
trying to know if I made my English in S.S.C.E, by asking what even
primary four pupils ought to know. Then I proceeded to my answer:
accordingly to Cambridge international dictionary of English;
discipline is defined as training which produces obedience and self-
control, I boldly stated. Everybody in that office started laughing at
me. I left admission unit to out faculty, to meet college secretary
for registration procedures. After the secretary''s nugget explanation
on basic requirements.
I asked; please sir, where can I locate medical
block so that when I get my locker and chair I would keep them there.
The man started laughing! I left the office with shame. I went to
student affair department; that was where I proved beyond all doubt-
that I''m a proper Johnny Just Come (J.J.C). Please Madam, where can I
find the senior prefect of the school? I asked. Of which school? The
women also asked. ABSU of course! I replied. She burst into laughter.
I then jumped into conclusion that it is now a culture in ABSU to
laugh before answering any question.
After the previous incidence; I was standing in front of the
school auditorium. Please are you a student here? A pretty lady asked.
Yes, 300 level, I lied. I''m looking for the school bookshop, she
stated. I burst into loud laughter.''Madness in practice'' the lady
said and hissed away!
O! POOR BOY-WHAT A FUNNY EXPERIENCE!
