They just couldn't stomach it
College is seen as the key to a better life for many hopeful students. You hope that your classes — and the professors who teach them — will lead you to your true path in life. Even though you’re in college, you’re still in the real world, and not everyone wants to make sure you succeed. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case.
These students knew that they had to drop their classes because the professors just seemed way too unreasonable.
Professor claimed she didn’t allow people to step out of class to use the bathroom. “You’re all adults, not children, you can hold it.” Exactly lady. We’re adults, we paid to be here, and adults have to use the bathroom. (Mild__sauce)
I understand we’re all adults but most of the classes I’ve ever taken, lectures ran anywhere from two-three hours, and if you’re someone like myself who carries a water bottle everywhere, you’re going to want to pee every now and then. I’ve even had professors run out for a few minutes so they themselves could use the restroom. (dramaaaaa)
I literally dropped four classes my sophomore year. Prior to starting the classes, the disability department contacted all of my teachers to tell them that I am deaf and that I would need some form of written/typed paper to follow along with lectures.
“Im completely deaf …..” “Sit closer, I cant give you special treatment.” (tigersharkdude)
Within the first five minutes, he made everyone put their laptops away because apparently we couldn’t be trusted to stay off Facebook, fair enough I guess? Whatever, I put my laptop away.
Next, he explains the rest of his technology policy. Apparently we all had been given 100/100 points automatically for attendance for the semester. Points would be deducted if we missed class of course, but also, 50 points would be deducted from everyone’s attendance points if anyone’s phone in the classroom went off, ever. When we expressed that he must surely be kidding, a kid that had taken a class from him previously testified that it had happened to them.
From here, I was already pretty sure I was going to drop, but the fact that halfway through the three hour class all we had covered was most of the syllabus was more than enough for me to pack my bags and walk out before it was even over. (numbersaremygameyall)
