When even entertainment isn't enough.
I have been operating under the assumption that my students just want to be entertained, but it seems that even entertainment doesn't cut it with them. There are no more tricks in my bag. Short of giving them all A's for never showing up, I don't know what else I can do to satisfy them. I'm pretty sure that they all expect college to be like it is in the movies. That's what we're up against, people: a fantasy institution of gigantic dorm rooms and state-of-the art facilities, with pool tables and beer pong around every corner, where every chick is hot and bikini-clad, and where everyone graduates in the end no matter how little time and effort they invest, no matter how badly they fuck it up. God. No wonder they hate my class.
