If you are, or have been a student in Nigerian tertiary institutions, then you must have come cross any of these kinds of people in night classes.
File photo: A typical night class scenario
The following are the different categories of people you will meet in night classes in our various higher institution.
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 6-9pm, you will discover that the class is almost empty. They are waiting till 11:30 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 talk to 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.
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 an extreme cases they can read in four to six different 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. They 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.
Hmmmmm, 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 will leave. They are always victims of the category of people 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, in fact all the snacks in the world just to attend night class. You will wonder if you are in nursery school 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 phone. Pressing their phone every now and then that you will wonder if they are actually studying or proof-reading.
11. The single and searchers :
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 last of it all is 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 noni.
13. The analyst:
This category of people are always looking for someone to argue with. Every topic is potentially arguably. They always want to make there point. this are the Gani Fawehinmi's.
