Potentially the Best Student Comment Ever
My Thursday night class should be retitled Advanced Narcolepsy: How to Use Your iPhone While Sleeping Through Class. Afterwards, exhausted from pulling even a few comments out of my class, a student approached me because she was having "trouble" with the 3-5 page position paper I assigned. * When I asked her what the trouble was, she said, and I quote, "I don't have the kind of brain that's good for...thinking...."
And my first thought was "As opposed to those brains that are good as decorative doorstops?"
I mean, what else is a brain good for if not thinking? And, as one friend pointed out, who identifies him/herself as someone who doesn't think?
It would be funny if it wasn't for the fact that someone
is paying thousands of dollars to "educate" this child.
*This paper shouldn't be a problem for even a freshmen in high school, nevermind a college student wishing to embark on a career as a business professional.
