Why can't people leave a good thing alone?!?

By baseacid.com

I want to buy the person this shirt!

I got an email today from my online Physical Science professor. Somebody in the class didn't like that the professor was emailing individuals their grades on assignments instead of using the grade tab on the online course site. They got the "brilliant" idea to go to the department head and complain rather than talking with the professor directly.

Said professor got into six different kinds of trouble for modifying the course.

So, now instead of the fairly laid-back class consisting of discussions and labs, with a chapter test we could complete over a week, we now have:

All due dates rigidly enforced. Death certificate must accompany extension request.

Rate of work jacked up to warp speed, just to make sure that nobody gets any sleep between now and the end of the semester.

Every ding-dang homework question in the back of the chapter emailed in for a grade (previously for your own use and ungraded.)

All tests now 45 minutes timed online, one shot only. No weekend to ponder the complicated nature of Kinetic Molecular Theory.

The 10-15 page term paper, originally deemed useless, reinstated. Due in a matter of weeks. Sigh


Smooth move, ExLax!! Now will somebody pull the knife out of my back?

OOSH! Why can't some people leave well enough alone. I hope that person learned his/her lesson- although probably not- they never seem to....
(sigh) Good luck with the rest of the semester.

I bet that person was the kid in school who reminded the teacher that they forgot to assign homework over the weekend and volunteered to be hall monitor all the time, too. Ugh....and they wonder why they always ended up shoved into lockers....

That really sucks. The person who started all this should be assigned double work. :( It's like when one kid in the class screws up and everyone is punished. Very elementary. Good luck in getting everything done. You can do it!

Got home from errands yesterday to find another email. Now I have to get all the homework problems from ALL the chapters done so far in by 10AM today!

This person better remain invisible or I may be tempted to hunt them down!!!
