The following are the different categories of people you will meet in night classes in our various higher institutions:
1. Customer care agents:
This category of people will keep on receiving calls from the time they came to class till they sleep off. If you sit beside them, “Sorry”,
and it is more among ladies.
2. The lookers:
This category of people will make
sure that they look at any slightest movement around them. If they ever see a beautiful/handsome girl/guy then they will never cease
catching a glimpse at her/him. You will even wonder if these people actually came to study or to observe others study.
3. The late comers:
This is common among girls. When you get to class from 4-7pm, you will
discover that the class is empty.
They are waiting till 9:30 when their presence will be noticed.
4. The preachers:
I am sure this set of people annoy every reader in that class but nobody could pick the courage to rebuke them because nobody wants to be tagged “Enemy of God’s Word.” The worst part is that these preachers come to preach when they are tired of reading and want to stretch themselves (lol).
5. The itinerant readers: they are people who move in and out of the reading room every ten minutes. Sometimes you see them walking about the corridors. In extreme cases they can read in four to six classes in a night
6. The unarmed robbers:
Yes, I call them unarmed because they look very innocent when
they are reading beside you waiting for the operation time. The steal things like phones, reading lamp, purse/wallet, laptops, wrist-watches, textbooks, etc. depending on the person’s level of expertise and stealing intentions.
7. The chronic sleepers:
Hmmm… This set of people will just enter the class and ‘lay their face on the desk and sleep off. They will not open their book from the time they came in till the time they left. They are always victims of the category of people in (6) above. The bad thing about these set of people is that they snore without regards and they fart without conscience.
8. The ash-crammers:
They are our first classers. They will start reading from the time they came in till dawn. Sometimes I wonder what they will be doing during the day.
9. The eaters:
They will buy biscuit, Viju milk,
lacasera, gala, chewing gum… infact, all the snacks in the world just to attend night class. You will wonder if you are in nursery class or university night class.
10. The pingers:
This set of people will never let
their phones be. Some will even come with up to three phones. Pressing their phones every now
and then that you will wonder if they are actually studying or proof-reading.
11. The toasters:
If I mention everything without
mentioning our guys and babes who come to night class to look for partners, then my list is incomplete. This is for people who are single and searching every night.
12. The couples:
The last of it all are the couples. They will come to class together, continue talking,chatting and touching each other until they are tired then off they go. They have gone to night class.
