Mean Professor Tells Student to “get your sh*t together”

Unbelievable how young people tend to feel so entitled. In which universe it is OK to be bothered to the point of emailing the professor because he/she rightly so kicks you out of his/her class due to you being ONE HOUR late?

Young people. Get your shit together and learn some manners while you are at it. The world doesn’t owe you anything.

EDIT TO ADD: I know that there are some very outstanding young people who are nothing like this and that there are some old people who never got it right. It happens. That’s part of the human condition. But it is noticeable how the level of entitlement keeps going up and up with the new generations.

Ok, let’s get serious here. A popular professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business replied to a student’s email in a way that is part jerkface but mostly, part sage life advice. Deadspin reports that a student walked into the 1st day of class an hour late and the professor told her to leave & come back to the next class. In the comments section, most people were surprised to find themselves siding with the professor, citing topics like the rudeness of interrupting 80 people who pay full tuition to the foolishness of  “shopping” 3 classes in the same time slot. The professor actually XXXX’d out the student’s name and emailed it to all of his students! See below.. what’s your take on this?

    I hate that there are young people out there that make me look bad. Even when I was 18 and just started University I knew that if I was late I could be told to leave.

    I had a professor in my 4th year that asked students to stand at the door and wait for a break to find a seat if they came in late and many students got mad that he would single them out in front of the class and ask why they were late. He said to us, “You can’t come in here late with your warm Starbucks coffee and expect me to sympathize with you. If you were going to be late for class then you shouldn’t have stood in line a bought a coffee!” I personally loved this professor. That class was at 8am and a friend of mine traveled the 2 hours I used to travel before I moved into the city for that class. She was never late!

    Some people who live on campus would show up late to class and it would make me so mad when I was commuting from another town, waking up early, catching a bus, catching a train and then the subway or walking to get to school! I was spending about 8-10 hours on transit a week to get to school and some people would just waltz in when they lived across the street!

    Very sorry about this comment. It turned into a big rant!

    How’d I miss this before? Thanks for the reblog! As someone who has worked with college level students for a really long time, I think this is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a long time. I would take every single class that professor offered, whether it was in my subject or not.

Got something to say?
