Let me set the scene.
Speight Building. Room 129. Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2-3:15 PM. Long, Narrow Room with 100 seats.I am the first to sit down in class. I pick the back so I can see what everyone is doing.
Now I dont particularly like taking intro classes because that means that I will be overrun by freshmen. Freshmen, in my humble opinion, should not be able to come to classes without taking and intro to intro class. Stupid comments and questions come out of their small, idiotic mouths. Now you might be saying, “Patrick, you were once a freshman.” To that I say, “Yes, but I wasn’t stupid.” Now my GPA was totally garbage and this was the only college I got in without having to sign on the dotted line and receive a uniform but I had enough common sense not to say the things they say in this class.
So lets get back on track. Got in class and was waiting for the teacher. She comes walking in looking like…well a hippie to best describe it.
No lie. She is about my moms age, 40-50 region. Anyways. She has extreme ADHD along with this hippie outlook on life.
Here’s the actual intro to this class given by her:
“My name is Dr. Rebbecca ———”, Name was disclosed just in case, “Well when I was in elementary school, I couldn’t spell my name so I just called myself Becky. And so all throughout school I was known as Becky, up into college, I changed it to Rebbecca. And well everyone calls me that now…except old friends who call me Becky…Anyways this is Intro to Sociology. How many people came through the front doors?” Half the class raised their hands. “Well go through there cuz thats our emergency evac route…we go out there(opens blinds) OH its nice outside, i might hang out there later, well you can see my office in the building across from this one and they had 4 fires last year, some pyro kept torching the maps in the history department…anyways if we have a tornado, earthquake, flood, um whatelse…VOLCANO, any major disaster we meet outside.”
Now I’m thinking…umm yes lets go outside because a building doesn’t provide decent protection from a tornado like being under a lamp post with the rest of my classmates…
“Well once we all get out there, we get our 2 buddies from here, pick 2 people who look responsible and make them give you their name, number, and place they live. So when we get outside, we will all hold hands and start singing.” She starts actually singing, “Give peace a chance”…
“Anyways, what was I talking about…oh yeah, intro to sociology. Anyone know what that is?” retard in front, obviously freshman. Oh yeah she is blonde too, stereotypes aside. “I have Anthropology and Psychology as well to Sociology, isn’t it basically the same thing since it has ‘ology’ at the end?” Teacher goes, “well..yeah it is sort of…” I drift off because I really don’t think anything else anyone says in this class has anything useful for me.
At the end of the class she asks “How many are freshmen?” about 80% “Sophomores?” about 15%. “Juniors?” Myself and 2 others. “Seniors?” 1 person.
She then asks, “Any more questions before we go?” Kid in the front, “Yeah, uh, well, do we have assigned seats like in high school?” What do you think kid? You just sat through a whole class talking about the syllabus and she didnt say anything about it…and THIS ISN’T HIGH SCHOOL!!!!
INTRO TO INTRO CLASSES - SHOULD BE MANDATORY!! It meets once a day for one week before classes start. Tells you where everything is on campus, what is required, and answers retarded questions like the above, “is all classes ending in ology basically the same?”
