This Has Been My Week In a Nutshell

This week I had several exams in one of my nursing classes - 4 in one class alone - and all of them have been stressful. Easily the most difficult week of the semester thus far.

Here's the scene: A group of us are down in the lab, waiting for our instructor to arrive so that we can begin our exam. Our instructor arrives and the following conversation ensues...

Instructor: "Good morning. Does anyone have any questions I can answer before we begin?"

Student: "Yes, I do. I'm confused about the correct order to do (a certain procedure) because there's a discrepancy in the notes. Can you clarify?
Instructor: "No, I can't answer that. You should know it."

Student: "But you just asked us if we had any questions you could answer before the exam starts."
Instructor: "Sorry. I can't answer that."

Student: "..."

Sigh. It will be a miracle if I make it out of here alive. I'm heading out to Marvin's tonight for a drink.


  1. Tough teacher! Who's Marvin? You fuckin' him?

  2. Oh God, I hate teachers like that. A friend of mine once noticed she had lost six points despite having a correct answer. When she took it to the teacher, he gave her back the points, but then took off six extra points from something else plus ANOTHER six points just cuz...

  3. Lmao, my civ pro teacher at least warned us he would do that. "I'll take questions the day before the exam from 1-5. But don't ask me, 'What are "minimum contacts"?' I won't answer you."
