Confusion in the Food Court

While I was leaving one of the dining rooms at our university center, a young student approached me, looking slightly distressed. This was our exchange.

Student (rather frantic): Do you hear music??!!

Me (concerned): Well, I did hear a little music earlier, but not now.

Student (still distressed): Oh. Hmmm. I was just wondering if you could hear music. There should be music.

Me (even more concerned): I mean, there was music. I could hear it a little over there (motioning into the dining room). I don’t think you’re hearing things!

Student (now confused): Oh, there should be music.

Me: Ohhh….?

Student: I mean, it’s part of my job. I’m supposed to check if there’s music playing in here!
