some people

remember how one of my students had his house burn down? today we went to the library for the first time since it happened, and the librarian told me

"a fire, isn't that horrible? and he had SIX books! but at least he's okay."

what the FUCK. it's generally very easy to read my emotions, so i hope my face conveyed the utter disgust and astonishment that her comment provoked.

Comments:
there's a sociological term for when people become so enveloped in the bureaucracy that they forget what they are working towards in the first place. i just can't remember it. i see that all the time, where people begin to view others (aka students, teachers, etc.) in terms of numbers. what a loss.
