Refrain of the Week

November 29, 2010 by Jen

This week, I’m thinking about taking a page from Melville’s book and adopting a new refrain from Bartleby the Scrivener.

Thesis prospectus? I would prefer not to.

Please notify the department of your final thesis committee: I would prefer not to.

Final papers? I would prefer not to.

Off-month budgeting? I would prefer not to.

Planning for next year? I would prefer not to.

Making decisions? I would prefer not to.

It worked for Bartleby, right?

Well…
