about this story

The sun was setting as the day came to a close, and the new Econ professor was sitting at the campus bar having a few drinks before his evening class. He sat there thinking about what he could possibly talk about in the Econ 101 course he was about to instruct. If anyone knew the truth about who he was he would be surely fired. He was a door-to-door umbrella salesman who accidentally walked into an interview with the dean and somehow got the job...they must have been desperate. He polishes off his last pint, and as he slams his glass down on the table he has a spectacular epiphany...umbrellas!! He rushes off to class and bursts into a room of people looking bored and impatient. One of the students indicates that he is over an hour late for class. He tries to make a smooth transition by saying he was held up by bad weather, and then opened up his umbrella enthusiastically. The next thing he remembers is waking up the next morning in a graveyard with dirt all over his hands and clothes.
