Parents were fond of the Bond movies?

Not uncommon here as several of my son's professors have teh same policy. He routinely regales us with the time wasting moments of class when folks ask questions that are clearly detailed in the syllabus.

Back in my day the professor wouldn't waste time. If the question was referenced in the syllabus he or she said --read the syllabus--and moved on. These days they may spend twenty minutes trying to explain again and again what should be easily understood via syllabus.

I barely retired in time to avoid some of this kind of thing.

My brother is an adjunct professor and the stories he tells of some of his students in engineering are just mind boggling.

I don't doubt it. I'm glad not to have to worry about those things anymore.

I know I'm going to sound like a prejudiced snob, but she lost me at Spring-Serenity. All I could think was, is that name really on her birth certificate?

/Imagine how George Kelley's students feel when they discover he doesn't have a cell phone!

They probably think he's crazy.
