As many of you know, RAs walk up and down the hallways in the dorms a few times every night making sure there's nothing dangerous going down. One thing that is fairly popular, particularly among first year students, is setting fire to bulletin boards. For some reason, people think it's okay to light fires in buildings.
While on rounds in my building, I was coming down one of the hallways when I caught sight of and smelled smoke. When I came around the corner, a piece of paper on a bulletin board was burning. I'm not talking about a full-fledged inferno; the paper was just smoldering. Regardless, it was very scary. I quickly removed the paper, and brought it to the bathroom where I ran the paper under cold water.
My question is, why do people show so much disrespect for others' work?
