Library Fees ‘TOO STRESSFUL’ for Harvard Students: Here are a Few Post-Harvard Stressers to Consider
And they wonder why we call them snowflakes?
The students at one of America’s most highly-respected institutions of higher learning can’t handle the stress of library late fees?
As FOX News reports:
This week, Harvard University announced that its libraries will be doing away with their traditional 50 cent-per-day late fee on overdue books.
Some might assume Harvard is terminating the fees because the school simply no longer needs the money. After all, the “private” university does receive billions in tax breaks every year.
No, finances had nothing to do with this policy change, which was first noticed by the vigilant folks over at The Harvard Crimson. The sole reason that this (once?) prestigious university is waiving the charge for overdue books is because this practice is just too stressful for students.
That bears repeating: Harvard University students, whom the school hails as the brightest young scholars our nation has to offer, simply cannot and should not have to deal with the stress of overdue book fees.
Wait until these little toddlers enter the real world.
The very world they’ve created where local, state, and the federal government rely on taxing that ass for anything and everything.
Late feeding that meter? How about a $50 parking ticket?
Late paying that electric bills? I’d like to see these pansies try gaming without power. And oh boy, when the iPhone battery dies, I predict massive suicides.
Do these “intellectuals” believe the world will offer safe spaces from late fees?
The meaning of a “safe space” has shifted dramatically on college campuses. Until about two years ago, a safe space referred to a room where people — often gay and transgender students — could discuss problems they shared in a forum where they were sheltered from epithets and other attacks.
Then temporary meeting spaces morphed into permanent ones. More recently, some advocates have turned their attention to student housing, which they want to turn into safe spaces by segregating student living quarters. Who would have imagined that the original safe space motive — to explore issues in an inclusive environment — would so quickly give way to the impulse to quarantine oneself and create de facto cultural segregation?
Well, we can now expand the definition of safe space even further.
How ridiculous has the Left become? Amazingly, Harvard capitulated.
Exactly how much were these fees costing the kids? WHO CARES! The cost is not the point! Returning books on time is the rule. Like being to class on time, which ultimately translates to being to work on time.
You want horror stories? Try the fee for filing your taxes late. Try that with the IRS and you will feel like the new inmate being passed around the prison in the “get to know my anus” party.
Ever returned a rental car late? You might as well BUY IT!
There are few things you can do late and get away with it.
Show up late to an appointment late, and you get bumped. Or perhaps you don’t get the job?
Show up late to court, and you might get arrested for contempt.
What the hell is Harvard teaching these kids? Though not catastrophic to not charge late fees, when you do, enforce it. It may seem like a little thing, but in the long run, it’s a life lesson.
