How long do you usually wait around for people before deciding they aren't going to show up?|
I'm sitting in what's supposed to be a screening for the Honors Film Series, but the people in charge of bringing things like pizza and soda and the actual movie are not here. Three other students and I have been waiting 20 minutes; usually people walk out on actual classes after that amount of time, but we're all still sitting here. We did make up an attendance sheet, though.
The only thing stopping me from walking out is the fact that I need to log a certain number of hours participating in Honors events each semester, or else I lose the concentration that I've spent four years wading through this kind of bullshit for. Predict the future, TQC: Will the fact that I showed up be enough to count tonight as the full two hours I was supposed to be credited for, even if I leave? Or will I have to stay for another hour and a half doing nothing?
ETA: We stayed for half an hour and then walked out. For clarification, it was other Honors students running this, not a professor.
New question: Will you buy me dinner, TQC? I was really counting on that pizza.
