I understand not wanting to write papers.
I understand procrastination.
But why, why, WHY (!) do they refuse to follow the basic rules of stapling!? How lazy do you have to be to not staple? How rushed do you have to be to staple in the wrong place? How? How? HOW!?
With these thoughts in mind, I've decided to put together a powerpoint presentation teaching students how to staple, and I would appreciate any suggestions you may have:
SLIDE 1. Title: Stapling and Your Professor - or - How to Avoid Filling Me with the Righteous Fury of a Thousand Thousand Suns
SLIDE 2. Deciding to Staple: Should I follow this silly little rule? I don't know. Should I drown you in a pool?
SLIDE 3. Proper Placement 1: The corner of the page, or I'll be filled with rage.
SLIDE 4. Proper Placement 2: Staple over text? I'll have to break your necks.
SLIDE 5. Alternatives?: Can I give the corner a fold? Would you like to be knocked out cold?
SLIDE 6. Alternatives?: Can I use a paper clip instead? That depends. Do you want to end up dead?
