Student bravely chooses to spark 30 minute discussion after professor asks if class wants to get out early

   "Fuck my life,"    thought Dr. McDermott as he thought back to the day he decided to abandon his lifelong dream of being a concert pianist in favor of a teaching career.

"Fuck my life," thought Dr. McDermott as he thought back to the day he decided to abandon his lifelong dream of being a concert pianist in favor of a teaching career.

Ignoring the sounds of his fellow students starting to pack their bags, Jacob, a 3rd year ME, bravely decided raise his hand when the professor asked “Does anyone have any last minute questions or do you guys feel like ending class early today?” Despite the sound of one student audibly muttering “Ugh, not this kid again” from the back of the room, Jacob courageously carried on and asked the professor to re-explain how slides 1,3, and 7 related to slides 9, 15, and 23, and how all the slides were related to the assigned readings for that week.

Brutally aware of his lack of tenure, the professor in question ignored the tiny voice in the back of his head screaming “FAIL HIM, FAIL HIM, FAIL HIM, FAIL HIM!” and proceeded to rob the entire class of an extra 30 minutes of their lives.

In a post-class interview,  Jacob unveiled plans to ask questions about the syllabus on the first day of every single one of his spring semester classes.
