Some people just blindly support the teacher/professor even when they are in the wrong. For example, students get penalized for being late but if the teacher is late because of a “family issue” or “traffic” it’s okay. But if the student says the same thing, it’s detention or an unexcused tardy or a lecture by the front office staff. (My colleagues are late all the time and still lecture students for being late. Hypocrites.) Speaking of which, students have to turn in their assignments on their due dates, but teachers/professors can’t grade within a reasonable amount of time. Really?! I grade EVERY single assignment that my students turn in the SAME day I receive them, whether it’s a test, quiz, project, homework assignment, warm-up, whatever. It’s not hard. You just do it. I once had a professor at the University of California school I went to for undergrad take almost 1.5 months to grade a multiple choice exam WITH 10 TA’s. I ended up getting fed up and emailing the dean of the college and all of a sudden the grades were in the next day. Imagine that! That must have been so hard to grade multiple-choice tests. Oh, the horror. Ridiculous.
