I’ve just had a very shocking experience. My students are writing an exam. One of the students, let’s call him Peter, finishes and hands in his exam 35 minutes before the end of the class period.
The students continue writing their exams. Suddenly, the door opens and Peter returns to the classroom.
“The exam was hard!” he announces loudly and aggressively. “Can I drop the class and have my money back?”
“You can go to the Registrar’s Office and withdraw,” I say quietly to try to minimize the commotion.
“I want my money back!” the student insists.
I stare him down very aggressively and he runs away.
What the flying fuck was that, people? I’m really not ready for students badgering me for refunds because they didn’t prepare for an exam.
