Either you're lying and you didn't ask anyone, or they told you not to tell because they don't want me to know that they have tenure but can't do a basic Gen. Chem. problem. If the former, f*** off. If the latter, refer to the lecture on evaluating your sources.
The best way to get my stink eye is to claim that "Everyone" (or any other mysterious group) agrees with you. I get it from students, from colleagues, from admin, from parents, even from people in my social circle. No patience for it. I assume it means you are lying. And I suspect that is the case here.ReplyDelete
For the purposes of the test, the two professors are Nobel laureates. But just not in a field in that requires them to use Gen. Chem.ReplyDelete
They probably said "I can't give you advice on homework for another professor's class because I don't know how he intends you to complete the assignment. He may want you to do it on your own." Which they heard as "Duuurpity derp, me no get da chemmy chem."ReplyDelete
I think you nailed it. I've been asked about things in other professors' domains. My standard answer is along the lines of "I wasn't in class with you and have not read the syllabus or the assignment, so I couldn't be sure if I was truly helping you fulfill the requirements." How they store and retrieve my demurral within their addled little pates is anybody's guess.Delete
Sounds plausible to me, too.Delete
But everyone else helps me do other professors' assignments!ReplyDelete
All the other students agree with me that you should cancel today's class to help me with my homework for another class.Delete
