"Can I have a glass of water?" I asked. The waiters nostrils flared. He turned and walked away without answering. I didnt' have a good feeling about this restaurant. Things only got worst. When the waiter returned, I asked him if he served large multi course meals. "Normally we do," he answered. "What do you serve"? I asked. "You have two choices--chicken or steak." The waiter looked at his watch and said; "but you have to come back tomorrow." I looked around the room. The sta ff staired at me. Their brows were furrowed; their mouths snarled. One particularly angry chef menacingly tapped a rolling pin in his large, flour covered hands. Sweat beaded on my upper lip; my hands trembled; my tummy growled. Finally, I found the courage to ask "Why must I wait?" "Because," the waiter replied, leaning in closer to my face, "we are closed." I looked at my watch a Rolex. It was still on New York time. I gulped. "What time is it?" "Eleven o'clock at night, and we want you to go home!" the waiter shouted with the other sta ff members' echoing him with derisive shouts of their own. "I will see you tomorrow" I said, getting up from the table. The waiter glowered. My joke only seemed to exasberate him more. "Or, maybe I wont." I ran out the door and down the street, hoping the rest of my vacation would go more smoothly.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
