Escape your life for a little while — come play in mine.

More grumbling about my psych professor

Posted by Lissa on April 13, 2011

Look.  I know it’s a community college.  I know she’s not getting paid as much as she wants.  I know that she has a daughter and probably lives a busy life.  I actually think she’s a nice person.  So, there’s that.

On the other hand — THE PROFESSOR PART OF MY PROFESSOR IS DRIVING ME UP THE EVER-LOVIN’ WALL.

We had a current events assignment (due today).  I’m irritated at the assignment because we have to do twenty articles and I know DAMN well she’s not going to read more than three of them.  We have to do twenty so that it’s a “term-end” kind of assignment, and then she’ll grab a few at random and grade the project accordingly.  I hope she picks some good ones.  Whatever.

Here’s the irksome part — we have to submit it to turnitin.com before hard copy submission in class.

No, I don’t care about my work being checked for plagiarism; I’ve never plagiarized anything in my life, so I could care less about proving it.

What drove me batsh*t InSaNe was . . . I needed the class ID to create an account.

Now, you might think that since the turnitin.com requirement was written on the syllabus, she might have included the ID information there.

No.

You might think it would be on the current events assignment sheet.

No.

You might think she would send an email to the class with the ID information.

Oh, no!

Instead, she mentioned it *once* on March second.  I had to comb through pages and pages of handouts and notes and scribbles to find that I’d jotted it down at the end of one class when someone asked.

HATE-RAGE HATE-RAGE HATE-RAGE.

I hope she got about fifty emails between last night and this morning asking for the ID.  It would serve her right.

grrrrr . . . .  . .
