Hello, i had you as a professor for Greek Philosophy at the University of D*****. I mean no disrespect here but you actually kicked me out of a class for calling some girl a name (that i never called her and would ever call her or anyone) simply because she told you i did. To this day me and my best friend Jay are still bothered by the fact you did that. You made my college experience way more difficult than it had to be. You are one of the most difficult people i have ever dealt with and am so glad to see you are a “former” philosophy professor mainly because no other student will have to deal with your bullshit again. Didn’t surprise me you would take a woman’s word over mine. You pushed your hardcore feminist BS on everyone. The thing was i tried so hard to be accepted by you in college i guess it took years of realization that you are in fact a horrible professor and probably not that much better of a person.
Well, then: I’m glad he meant “no disrespect!” (And who after the age of 22 still uses “i” instead of “I?” Somehow, I don’t get the impression that this guy is an e.e. cummings enthusiast.)
What’s your diagnosis? Is this the Facebook message equivalent of “drunk dialing?” (My friend the professor has no memory of this student, who signed his full name, nor does she recall kicking anyone out of class.) Was he checking his Facebook page and wondering, “gee, I wonder what ever happened to that awful feminist philosopher I took a class with ten years ago?” Personally, I read this as a cry for help.
The writer rather winds himself up into a state, with each sentence he writes making him progressively angrier, from “I mean no disrespect” to “bullshit” to “harcore feminist BS” to “you are in fact a horrible professor and probably not that much better of a person.” I wonder why being told to leave one class once made his “college experience way more difficult than it had to be?” How fortunate for him that this was the worst experience of his college years!
Isn’t it fantastic to know that we’re so memorable, all these years later?
