I haven’t found it yet, but think it reads, “Faculty will attempt to teach all students regardless of their level of reality and intake of medication."
I have students with paperwork for various issues. Okay, fine, I can deal. On the other hand, one had no paperwork, but informs me that they are on medication. I tell them where to go to get paperwork. At this point, the student then decides to roll around on the tiled floor and treat me to a TMI session! Do I need to know how you feel about your family? No, I don't. Professional to the end, I offer some non-binding murmurs of sympathy, grab my books, and tell the white lie of having to get to a meeting.
Am I running a psychiatric clinic?…The powers that be can kiss my asterisk regarding the customer service model. That incident showed me I don’t teach---I babysit. The inmates really are running the asylum. When I find that crazy clause in my contract, it’s getting stricken out. They really don’t pay me enough to deal with things like this.
