I'm taking Cultural Literature this semester- not a bad class, pass if you do the required reading, nothing too big.
My professor, on the other hand...
First, he has put most of his quizzes/tests on our Blackboard site, but FAILS to tell us until the day of a quiz/test whether or not if we will take in class.
NOW! Monday, we were scheduled for test, his implication that it would be online. However, due to a power outage on Sunday night, all classes were cancelled for Monday.
So, I go online to check my Blackboard stuff for another class, and just out of curiosity, see if there are any announcements on the Cult Lit one- Say! There's the test we're supposed to have. I ought to take it, just in case it's not pushed back.
SO. Today. I go up to my Cult Lit class, and the other students are discussing an email saying that the test was scheduled for today and is IN CLASS.
Me: But the test was on Blackboard on Monday...
Everyone else: What are you, stupid? Don't you read your email?
Me: >.> You know, people DO have multiple classes in a row.
And I'm sitting there FUMING when the prof comes in.
He does say that we need a sheet of "WHITE LINED PAPER, BECAUSE I WILL FAIL YOUR ASS IF YOUR ESSAY IS NOT ON WHITE LINED PAPER! YOU NEED TO GET THE WHITE LINED PAPER OUT FOR THE ESSAY PART!" (In context, that's what he said.)
He does NOT say "Was there anyone who took the test on Blackboard on Monday? If so, you are excused."
Oh, but wait! Some guy who comes into the room TWENTY minutes after we start mentions that HE has taken the test on Monday, and is henceforth excused.
Albeit being a college professor, you sir, are AN IDIOT. Why the FUCK would you post a test on a DAY OFF from classes and NOT send an email saying that the test has been moved? In fact, why do you send out emails FIVE FUCKING MINUTES BEFORE CLASS STARTS and assume that we have read them?
And yet, you also assume that all of us slacked off on our day off. I'm pretty sure most of us did. However, SOME people did take advantage of the situation and caught up on their reading and such, and guess what! They took the test! IT IS NOT THAT HARD TO ASK "Has anyone already taken the test on Blackboard?" IT ASTOUNDS ME THAT YOU ARE A COLLEGE PROFESSOR, WHEN YOUR SKILLS ARE SIMILAR TO MY TEACHERS BACK AT THE CESSPOOL! YOU! OUT OF MY MAJOR!
Kindly PLEASE retire NOW, and do not further embarass the English department here. You sir, fail at life.

PS. Your class sucks
