I want to write fascinating awesome things with this cool pen. Instead I am stuck answering student emails about why they can’t do their homework on time, have mercy because they have 6 classes, woe is me. Sigh.
What I said was, you had the assignment for a long time and you have known the schedule all semester. If you waited to the last day to do it, oh well. [not in those words]
Do your 6 classes not give syllabi with due dates, allowing you to plan ahead? Oh, they do? Well shucks then, I guess you’re just not keeping up.
my student is a sassing bitch.
my colleague had a student send threatening emails.
we’ve both had to protect our TAs from students who harrass them.
Why do I keep this job, again?
I would find this job better if I felt more respected. And if I didn’t feel that at any moment a student might snap and become a creeper. It’s too bad that I have to tell my RAs and TAs to keep the phone number of campus security handy, for protection from their fellow students who don’t know how to handle their own rage and entitlement.
All my female colleagues have stories of creeper students.
This is not acceptable. The men don’t get creepers.
I call on all humans to end the patriarchal nonsense!
