AU STUDENT "Hey AU, can I set up a lemonade stand outside MGC since its such a hot day?
AU ADMIN "Sorry kid, American University doesn't let students do anything unless you fill out these 35 forms and get the signatures of every government official in our administration. We'll probably get back to you in 5 months with our response. In the meantime, just go to TDR and drink some of our all natural watered down minute-maid lemonade."
Me:"I can't wait for the American University girls to show up."
(Honestly, I wish I could claim that I was making this up.)
1.) Go to TDR and complain how much they hate it, yet continue to go there.

3.) Complain about how much they hate the library.
4.)Girls like to complain about how all the good guys are gay.
5.) Guys like to complain about how all the girls are ugly.
