The Crash

So I’m in Corporations, reading1 a slide about the Business Judgment Rule. My classmate sitting next to me starts to lean back in his chair and we hear a snap:

chair collapse

A-BOOM-a-noom! Both of us crash down to the floor and hit our heads on the ledge behind our seats…and hilarity ensued.2
Professor M: “Oh my god! Are you guys okay?”
(The entire class laughs, as we scramble back up)
Me: “Yes, but you now have to change your seating chart, ‘cus we’re moving!”
(We dust ourselves off and move our stuff, the laughing intensifies).
Professor M: “Yes! I’ll do that right now actually!”3
Law school is all grace and poise, don’tcha know?

1 Seriously, this is the karma I get for paying attention…
2 Total “But No Thanks” reference.
3 Yes, Professor M actually changed the seating chart as we moved over to non-broken seats. We sat in launch position for the rest of the class lest we repeat the crash scene.

    Hahhaha. I hope you are well on your way to recovery.

    Thanks for the tag- you’ve officially contributed to my already over-inflated ego.

    OMG. That is hilarious (glad neither of you were injured, obv). Those kinds of chairs are Dangerous! A kid in my section crashed to the floor in a similar blaze of glory during orientation. None of the profs could figure out why nobody wanted to sit in that part of the room the next week.
    Also, A-boom-a-noom??? For some reason that put the “manamana” song in my head….thanks 😉
