Dude...Shut UP

Here's a story of the school douche in its natural habitat.

In the class that started last week (math...ugh) our prof did the usual shtick about doing a little intro about himself, where he went to school, his personal details, etc. He mentioned how he had two little twin girls. Cue the "ohhh" "awwwww" from the ladies in the class.

Cut to this week and him cutting us loose on break. I'm sitting there finishing up working out a problem and he fires up a Power Point that has pictures of his twins. Again, there’s the expected response from the ladies in the room. But the dick behind me busts out with this, “So how is this related to math?

OK, first off, we’re not in class right now, we’re on break. Now, I’m not a big “let’s make cute sounds about the kids” sort of guy. But it isn’t like he’s doing this on “our” time so to speak. So stop being such a sanctimonious prick.

It’s getting to be about 9:10pm. The class runs from 6:40 to 9:40. He finishes up lecturing about a problem that he was running through for us, looks up and says, “Well, that’s about all I’ve got for you guys this week.” Of course there’s furious activity as people start packing up their stuff and get ready to bail the hell out. And this same douche who made the “where’s the math” comment earlier says, loud enough so that the whole class can hear it says, “But it’s only 9:15, there’s 25 minutes left.” There was sudden silence as about 45 people seated throughout the room snap to look in the direction of where this ill-advised comment originated. He innocently looks around with a bewildered look on his face and exclaims, “What?!”

Listen, you know what you dipshit. It’s almost 9:30, there’s a good chance a lot of people in a night class have already been in class or working all day. People want to go the hell home already. This causes the instructor to proffer the begrudging, “If anyone wants to stay the length of the class, I’ll hang back to answer questions or talk.”

I mean what kind of person does that?! A fucking asshole, that’s who.

Welcome back. Did you forget how to work the internet?

Also, people like that should be cockpunched. Repeatedly.

I had that same guy in one of my classes back in the '80s. I figured he had graduated or died or something . . . . Then again, maybe it's his son. Seriously if a professor is wanting to end class early - it's his class.

I had a guy go to the Dean of the Department to complain that a class and the professor was "too easy". I have never felt that much murderous rage before.

TK - Thanks! This interwebs thing...what a crazy contraption!

I seriously considered it. Repeatedly.

BD - I wish this guy would die. And I completely agree.

Melody - That guy should also be dickpunched. What a douche.
