A few weeks ago during our weekly, secret, psychiatry meeting, one of my cohorts that I will refer to as Dundi or The big skinny, made an announcement. He and I are on the social committee, and he decided to round up a group for an intermural league. Well, he gave us a sheet with all of the options and days of the week and times that it met. Then told us to sign up for all the ones we were willing to consider knowing that one sport would be selected with the best turnout. So the whole setup sounds pretty good and he has managed find enough people to play dodgeball. He makes the announcement that all systems are go and that he is going to officially sign us up. After this second meeting, I walk with him to the computer to sign up for the sport online. He is gabbing about something or other, then I cut him off and say "why are you looking at this site?" He responds with a simple "what?" and I fall into the floor I am laughing so hard.
Well, what happened was that apparently www.usc.edu is not indeed University of South Carolina but Southern California. Carolina's website is actually www.sc.edu . He had gotten on the wrong website and even spoke to an intermural person on the phone. Apparently he didn't think about the wrong area code because he is also from Kentucky and new to SC and becasue he had a cell phone and didn't realize it was long distance.
It was the most hilarious mix up I have seen..... ever. The rest of the group who had signed up for dodgeball in Southern California decided that even only playing once a week the commute from South Carolina was too far.
