Asking for too much

A little light relief from parallelism — a question on the forums at DBASupport.com has captured my interest. One of the clearest examples observed in the wild of a person without initiative, possibly taking some course for which SQL is required but not of interest to the attendee.

Is it beyond reason to ask that someone just look up a simple example of what they’re trying to do and compare their own efforts? Apparantly so.

  1. Blink-182:

    I took her out it was Friday night
    I wore cologne to get the feeling right
    We started making out and she took off my pants
    But then I turned on the TV
    And that’s about the time that she walked away from me
    Nobody likes you when you’re 23
    And are still more amused by TV shows
    What the hell is ADD?
    My friends say I should act my age
    What’s my age again?
    What’s my age again?
    Then later on, on the drive home
    I called her mom from a pay phone
    I said I was the cops
    And your husband’s in jail
    This state looks down on sodomy
    And that’s about the time that bitch hung up on me
    Nobody likes you when your 23
    And are still more amused by prank phone calls
    What the hell is caller ID?
    My friends say I should act my age
    What’s my age again?
    What’s my age again?
    And that’s about the time she walked away from me
    Nobody likes you when your 23
    And you still act like you’re in Freshman year
    What the hell is wrong with me?
    My friends say I should act my age
    What’s my age again?
    What’s my age again?
    That’s about the time she broke up with me
    No one should take themselves so seriously
    With many years ahead to fall in line
    Why would you wish that on me?
    I never want to act my age
    What’s my age again?
    What’s my age again?


    If I claim I have a learning disability, can I take the OCP as an open-book/open-google exam?
