The trials and tribulations of goin' to college

I began to think of words like Hate, Loathe, and Detest... So to investigate their definitions further so not to use them out of context I went to Merriam-Webster Online and found that they all fit when describing teachers who cancel class without sending out an email! [emphasis supplied] - TL Cat
Ya know, I 'member that no one emailed me whenever a class was canceled durin' my years in college, but, then again, since neither the PC nor the Internet was in wide spread usage back in the early 80's, it was not anythin' any of us 'spected from our professors. In fact, although nearly all of us had a phone connection, I would likely have fainted if any of my professors had called me to tell me that the day's class was to be canceled. I guess times have changed! Posted by Tiger at September 24, 2004 04:02 PM

Everything has changed -- I have students email me late sunday night and are indignant if I haven't replied before class on monday morning.

Well I'm not exactly college age anymore (29) but I did get a college degree less than two years ago. Sure the speed and ease of communication has changed. And sure its easy to set up an email list for your class. But not all profs are exactly on the cutting edge of such things. This stuff happens in the professional world too.

This person is just a bitchy vapid wuss. As evidenced by their superiority complex over "the freshman". In reality nothing has changed there have always been people like this. Oh no he wasted an hour, the world is gonna end. Its such a shame they were inconvenienced. Next time they get indignant give them a pop quiz.
