Freshman is 'naturally' a geek, has yet to intentially run over any pedestrians while driving in Tucson

Wildcat: My name is Kylee and you're on the spot. Tell me, why do you think there are so many stupid drivers on the road in Tucson?

Deptula: I don't know. Maybe people just don't get it or, like, they're too busy to pay attention or they're really, really in a hurry. I don't know. It's just really irritating, like, getting almost hit and almost dying and having, like, your feet torn off at a crosswalk because someone just blows through and they're too impatient.

Wildcat: Have you run over anybody yet?

Deptula: No. I don't have a car here, so I haven't really driven over anybody yet.

Wildcat: Have you ever tried to run over anybody intentionally in the past?

Deptula: No, I haven't.

Wildcat: Are you lying to me?

Deptula: No. No road rage here.

Wildcat: Is there anybody that you'd like to run over that you met here this first week of class?

Deptula: At least one or two. There's a teacher that I won't mention. She's a little ... iffy, but everybody else is cool.

Wildcat: So do you think that the students who have scooters and mopeds think that they're better than those of us who have to walk to class?

Deptula: No, I just think they're a little geekier.

Wildcat: What makes them geekier?

Deptula: I don't know. Just the way they have to hunch down to hold onto the handle bars just makes 'em look a little goofy.

Wildcat: Would you mind riding a moped if you could afford one?

Deptula: Yeah. I actually tried to get my mom to get me one of those little itty-bitty Target scooters, but she wasn't goin' for it. She didn't want me to, like, run into anything or break my head open.

Wildcat: So then you're not afraid of looking geeky?

Deptula: No, no. Not at all. I'm a geek anyways. It comes naturally.
