I am not saying all college professors are lazy but wow never have I met a profession full of people who stress being prompt, being in class and turning in assignments on time, when it takes them weeks to get the grades in.

I have a class that I was finished with 2 months ago and the lazy SOB hasn't even posted a single grade...

Sorry They have 3 weeks to turn in grades and most wait til the last day, which sucks when you need to show your grades to get more money for college and fees are due 3 weeks ago!!!!!

Hey!!! As being an ex-instructor, I beg to differ! It gets rather difficult getting the grades in on time. When I have to make lesson plans for next term, smoke a bowl with staff and ogle the hotties in the commons area! There just is not enough time in the day to get everything done.. Now STFU and pay your tuition! With a LOT of hard work some day, maby some day, you too can teach!

My son had his reprot card from college less than a week after the semester ended. I was almost in shock.

Glad to see it though because I had already told him if he didn't do well the gravy train was over and I didn't want to shell out for another semester until I knew how he was doing.

Yes teaching would be the way to go... Summer off , every year. Would leave much time to play with guns... I'm taking grad classes now and some teachers are just a joke. You go from teachers who the read the books power point presentation to the teacher that has the students do the class each week and your graded on how well you teach...

I had a teacher do that, assigned all the subjects out to groups, he just sat back and watched.

oh the thing that really pisses me off is that one teacher has given all our exams as scantron all she has to do is run the fucking tests through a machine and then post our grades, it would only take 1 hour to do!

The grad student who does all the grading probably died of starvation. It takes a while to find another grad student to take over the work.

I can't tell you the number of times my wife has had to drive into town to make a class and the professor doesn't even show up. No advanced warning. However if you miss one of his classes, he
wants a hospital bill to prove you had a medical problem.

Try being in law school. Our grades are not even due until January 5 (the semester ended on December 16). On top of that, we will not even get our grades released until around February.

My one bitch about college professors is with my psychology prof. He was a hippy type that sat with his legs crossed on his desk at the front of the classroom. He was the "don't call me Dr. call me Graham" type. Sorry bud, but you earned the title, and I called him Dr. [Whatever his name was] until the end of his class. Ironically, he marked me down on my term paper because it was "too informal in tone."

I had that happen 3 times for one teacher this semester, now mind you this was a 1 day a week class! At least the 3rd time he sent out a email, only problem was that i came straight from work and didn't check my email
