First, the happiness. I'm giving my final exam today. Ahhhhh, I'm pretty much done!! Collecting books tomorrow, rinky-dink liittle awards program on Monday. Now, the dumb kid. I've got one student that is utterly devoid of the barest shred of common sense. This is the kid that will interrupt my lecture to ask if he can go to the bathroom. Now if it's an emergency, sure I understand; but three times a week?? Come on! Well I'm in the middle of my first block final, and this kid comes in (without knocking), meanders between all the desks, looking over people's shoulders, all the way to the back of the room, to ask me if he can use my pencil sharpener. WTF?! The kid's got a handful of pencils; I guess he came from a room where the pencil sharpener is broken. Now it may not seem like that big a deal, but the kid should have had some common sense. 1. I'm not going to let him run an electric pencil sharpener for 5 minutes while other students are trying to take an exam that counts for 15% of their final 9-weeks-grade. 2. He knows the final is today, and he just wandered through the room and had opportunity to see the final exam before taking it. Duhhhhh.
