more on stupidity and stupid people...

the comprehensive final for one of my classes. was in a big auditorium-like room. there were two or three classes together. the professor had told us to bring our I.D. just in case she didn't recognize someone, being that she teaches a lot of classes. 

of course there were corrections to be made to the tests. i wonder why the teachers don't proofread their tests one last time before they print it out and run off copies. and i don't know why they stress so much about changing every single typo. obviously if the question says would healing, we can figure out that it means wound healing. doesn't everyone always say that nursing is one of the hardest associates degrees? give us some credit to be able to figure things like that out!

so as the professor was running through all the mistakes on the test, the woman sitting next to me raised her hand and asked for a pencil. i looked at her and wasn't surprised that i didn't recognize her. although i know most of the students in the same year as me in the nursing program, there are always some who don't have any of the same classes as me,  and don't study with same people i study with. she'd been sitting next to me for about twenty minutes before the professor came in, and i heard her telling someone on the phone that she wasn't feeling very well, but couldn't afford to miss the exam, so she was drugged up and praying she'd be able to focus on her paper. (indeed, she did look quite confused) apparently my professor didn't recognize her either. she walked over to the woman, squinted at her, and said 
"i don't recognize you. are you in my class?" 
Confused Woman looked up at the professor and said something that i couldn't quite catch. then the professor looked at her papers and said to Confused Woman 
"your exam is not here. it's in room 3225 over in Building II. you should hurry though, because your exam started fifteen minutes ago". 
so Confused Woman gathered her things and left the room. 

that got me wondering. the woman had been sitting in the room for close to a half hour before the professor came in. did she not realize that there wasn't a SINGLE person from her class sitting in the room? and when the professor came in and started talking and handing out papers, did she not realize that the woman standing in front of the class was not THE WOMAN WHO'D BEEN TEACHING HER FOR THE PAST THREE MONTHS??????????

drugged or not, i wouldn't want HER as my nurse!

I know, I should be more embarrassed of that than I am. Actually, I am proud. I was able to sleep very little the night before the days that I had certain teachers....

stupid people dont really have rights. they should all be locked up somewhere where they cant bother the rest of us. maybe canada?
and worse than ur average stupid person is the stupid person who doesnt realize that theyre stupid, and therefore continually say stupid things and then get all offended when you show them how stupid they are. they dont need to be locked up. they need to be shot
