Saving the Students

Here's a story of sorts. I just freed one of my students from a nearby elevator--literally came and pulled open the doors after she called me on my cell phone.

She: "Thanks a lot."
Me: "Are you kidding me? Pulling open those doors is the coolest thing I'll do all week."
She: "I'll have to tell everyone how you were my hero and came to my rescue."

I'm pathetic.

    Your student called you on your cell phone? You waited like five years before you gave me your cell phone number!

    Yes, but that was back in the days of pre-paid wireless calling. Now that I'm a fancy professor, I've upgraded to a fancy monthly plan, and I wantonly give out my fancy new number to all my not-so-fancy students.

    Here's a question: why in God's name would you give your cell phone number to a student? Are you living in some different universe than I am?

    Not "a student," but "all my students."

    They rarely call, and when they do, it's almost always for a good reason.
