They just couldn't stomach it
“These books are required for the class. I wasn’t able to get the revision into the bookstore in time, so the only place you can get them is from me directly or from my website. I will warn you, if you don’t buy the books you won’t get the login information to be able to take the final, which is 90% of your grade.”
“Oh, and no, I can’t accept financial aid for them, but it’s only $250 so it’s not a big deal.”
Never seen an entire class get up five minutes in and leave before. (inibrius)
Two-hour, in-class, pre-recorded PowerPoint lectures from 2008, ‘because it saves time for me, and please don’t ask questions until after the end of my PowerPoint’. This was in 2017. (letsdraw2)
This was my physics professor, but it was from the ’90s and he hasn’t changed it since he started teaching. Also, he skips haft of it and doesn’t go over the important stuff at all. (Zelgoth0002)
Over the winter break of my freshman year, I was diagnosed with a degenerative bone disease in my knees which meant I had to use crutches for a while (then eventually a wheelchair for a time). I was late to my Philosophy 101 class (due to adjusting to my newfound limitations). I apologized for my tardiness and tried to find my seat without making a fuss.
As I was making my way across the classroom, my philosophy teacher remarked, “Everyone, let’s just patiently wait for the cripple here to get to his seat.” It’s possible she had believed I was one of several skiing injuries that the student body had incurred over winter break, but either way after that first day, I never came back to that class.
