Oh thank heavens....

That this class is nearly over! I have now had this instructor for two classes and he goes on and on about how many different people have tried to kill him in his lifetime (starting when he was just a lad and is certain he saw someone disposing of a body to several political hits and a mafia hit), how he's helped the FBI in a sting, was a whistleblower against a major corporation (funny 'cause his name doesn't pop up when you read on the case). He's also an expert on all things (hmmmm.....I know a few peps like that!) honestly, bring up a subject and he insists its one of his specialities! The class goes onnnnnnnnnnn and onnnnnnnnnnnnnn and onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn with no end in sight and the only real education I am getting is from my textbook because class period is one big trip down memory lane that we've heard time and again. I'd honestly wonder about the education you receive here but my other instructors have been wonderful. Some people just aren't effective as teachers. Bummer because I know there are some amazing teachers out there and some mediocre ones....it just sucks when you have one who really isn't interested in teaching but rather in listening to the sound of his own voice

Sounds like my old high school principal. He could NEVER talk to ANYONE without bring up Black Hawk Down. And he always kept quoting, "I am Black Hawk Down!". One day during a discussion about how to make resumes when he started talking about Black Hawk Down (nothing to do with resumes, I might add) I finally asked, "Why weren't you mentioned in the novel?" Man oh man, wrong question to ask!

Have you ever seen Kristen Wiig as Penelope in SNL? I've been trying for over half an hour to find you the funnest skit by her where she one-ups everyone, but I guess You Tube doesn't have it anymore. Anyway, it's a total parady on people like this teacher.
