Yep, college Freshmen, so I was bound by a lot of educational law.

And I'll probably take you up on that PM offer when I can!

I won't mention how I passed algebra 2 in college. TongueAngel

Your unmatched skill and unparalleled intelligence?

There was skill involved. Tongue


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Oh dear...you blackmailed the professor by finding incriminating photos?

Somewhere out there is a photo of a man standing behind a very scared goat at the edge of a cliff.

Indeed. It makes me feel good they're paying about $21.50 an hour though; normally I feel bad about tuition costs. (And I assure you all, I am not seeing that cash.) It was an Intro to Criminal Justice course; as the new guy I got hit with 7 of them out of 8 classes this academic year.

From your reply, I would guess they are college students? I only guess that because parents did not get involved. Glad that they failed the final, does that mean they fail the class? Will you have to teach the same students next semester? If so, set up a seating chart the first day so they are separate and also set your desk so that you sit behind them. Best wishes for a better group next semester! Big Grin Feel free to PM me if you want to talk about teaching.

Don't worry at all, you were completely discreet about it, we would have no idea which students you had problems with. We have the same responsibilities with younger students. Glad that the class is over.

Did you ace the oral exam?

I'm not proud of it, but I totally did. Smartass

The prof probably liked that oral examination more? (Totally could never let one of my students do that lol.)

Need to think of a witty signature.

RE: Ranting corner
I'm not certain if it's a good day yet or not. I mean, it feels like it but ... I need to get a lot of things done before I can actually call it a day, at all.
And I haven't done a single, goddamn thing. Normally, that might be ok because, there's usually nothing to do but today... it seems like a ton of shit and I'm uncertain where to start.
One can only assume stepping away from the fucking computer might be first on the list.

Well, I'm off to Costco...

Did I mention taking my little bitty 'Bryce' is kinda a pain in the ass? It's Costco, if there was ever a place that I needed the "mom van" that was it. Dodgy

Did I also mention that I neglected to make a list? Blush
