Time for a change

When a professor walks into a class and says, “Let’s get one thing straight, I’m not here to be your friend, I’m not even here to like you.” And he continues by telling the students that he will only give copies of the syllabus to the students that he knows and that everyone can download it from the site. And then he tells them that the students that he knows and likes would know that they didn’t have to buy the expensive book but that they can instead buy the cheaper previous version, but that the rest of the class is stuck with the expensive book. And when he closes by saying that yes, this is how he weeds out students, but he doesn’t care and he still doesn’t have an interest in being your friend. It’s time for him to get a new job. And, oh yeah, the smart student drops that class.

And, oh yeah, let’s get a few things straight – a professor, may not be there to be your friend or like you, but it is their job to help you learn the material and it’s hard to learn in a hostile environment. I believe that a professor incapable of befriending students should quit teaching. It is the professor’s job to provide the student with a copy of the syllabus. And, yeah, if they don’t care about the edition of the book then they should indicate that as well. Professors who weed out students by being tough are kick-ass. Professors who try to weed out students by being an ass, well they’re asses. But that’s about all. So yeah, there’s this prof and he needs a new job. Anyone have openings for arrogant assholes?

About texancountess

I find myself in the calming roar of the sea, floating gently on the foam of the breaking waves. Blue. Green. Gray. The colors of the sea mark the boundaries of my soul. The tumbled glass finds its polish under the relentless pounding of the waves upon the shore. Thus am I. Rough transitioning to polish, refinement ever a process, finding my niche in the storms of life.
