Thanksgiving Memories

This is one of my favorites.

Set the way back machine for college and the time when a man nicknamed Doc was head of the theatre department.

Our school always had classes the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Freshman who had already made travel plans were generally off the hook when it came to missing that day, but upperclassmen were greeted with a 'well, you shoulda fucking known better' attitude.

One fine November, Doc's class decided they should all just leave on Tuesday to travel home. Screw class on Wednesday. What was he going to do, take away their birthdays?

Wednesday's class came and Harris, the man who took over as head of the department when Doc retired, knew all the upperclassmen of the theatre department had scattered to the winds. As he was walking past Doc's classroom, he heard Doc's voice. Harris poked his head in and there was Doc, drawing diagrams, pointing out features, apparently oblivious to the fact he was the only soul in the room.

"Uh, Doc, what are you doing?" Harris asked.

"Go away! I'm giving a lecture!"

So Harris went back to his office, wondering if he should call the nice young men in the white coats for Doc before or after the holiday. Luckily he waited until after.

Monday afternoon Doc's students walked into class, all smug as cats with cream on their whiskers. And Doc gave them a pop quiz on the material covered in Wednesday's class.

Lol.

I had a class in my senior that was ridiculous. The man didn't teach anything, just talked randomly about poets that he had known. He didn't give homework, his tests were bizarre and nothing that you could study for, you just had to take them and pray. People just stopped going to class most of the time.

I think that the only reason that I got an A was that the day before spring break he very carefully took down the names of the four students that came to class.

*ouch* I don't seem to recall any of my professors ever being that mean...actually I think most of my professors, at least in the theatre department were like "FUCK THE SYSTEM! NO CLASS WEDNESDAY!" Because they all didn't want to work the day before Thanksgiving.

But it is a little bit hilarious. I'm not gonna lie. Just glad that never happened to me.
