Random Thought on Movies
School Bells in Colleges
I've attended four colleges and not one time have I ever heard a school bell ring to mark the start or end of class. I find it funny to see a classroom in a movie scene where a ringing bell signifying the end of class conveniently interrupts a meaningful moment. I know it's a plot device, the bell, but it does not reflect reality. When it comes down to it, it annoys the hell out of me.
I see the same thing in TV shows as well with the bells in a college setting.
