things that are making you happy - Page 3665

post #54961 of 57456
I had a student this semester who was right on the borderline between two letter grades (little below dat borderline if you want me to be more specific). The student sent me hell of annoying e-mails like "I deserved higher grades on my papers please re-grade them forthwith" and "why isn't my final paper grade on Blackboard I turned it in yesterday should be graded by now." I gave the student the higher of the two grades because that had been my practice for students in this particular class. (Basically that was my practice because most of them did crappy and I would have hell of low grade distribution otherwise.) Posted in happy because my giving the higher grade demonstrates good integerty of character could of been like "Goddammit you annoy me you get the lower grade!!!"

This is good stuff, Piob. I worked a fair bit with that population at my last job, and it's a challenging one. It's also one that needs an enormous amount of support it frequently doesn't get from our society.

Are you sure you didn't just steal some local shiners note to self?

I have a picture in my head of some dude wandering in the woods outside of Nashville going, "where the fuck did I put my still!?!? I swear it was right here last night!"

I had a little moonshine purchasing adventure recently:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
My friends back in NYC/CT requested some legit backwoods created Tennessee moonshine and it wasn't hard to find after I asked my Nashville disc golf buddy Leon* wink.gif

So Leon is like: "Okay I know a guy." texts... Then says, "You're in luck there's some White Lightning available now, you want to come get it with me? Its near a great burger place... Fat Mo's"

I'm curious and go (about 20min outside of Nashville) and he calls me as we get closer into some real backwoods country and says "hey maybe you want to hang back, these guy's be real rednecks... wait out in front I'll get if for you"

We pull up to the house and there's Trump, Fuck Hillary, and even a White Lives Matter! signs on barb wire fence of the property. My friend goes inside gets the the moonshine and we go eat burgers after. While eating he laughs and says: "I didn't want them to hear your yankee accent, they might get nervous, also there's not that many asians there"

I take a bite of my Fat Mo's Burger, which is delicious, a little confused... because.... Leon's black...

This makes me sad.  You only encouraged this kind of behavior.

Agreed.
Also of direct benefit to much of the SF population.




One of those statements is meant sincerely.

No, because you're not poor.

No commercial flights from ORD to MDW.  Nice try.  You'll have to accept uberChopper or whatever it is.

They should add that flight.

 

The flight from MKE to ORD is just as funny.  20 minutes and you'll spend at least 50 mins taxing and waiting.  Did it once to get a connection out west.  We were the first flight into ORD at like 6am.

Not always. Sometimes you don't get the stamp on your pass, and if you're not careful about wearing shoes without metal (**COUGH:alden:COUGH**), you'll still have to remove them at the x-ray.

Even so, it's a frequent and pleasant reminder of pre-9/11 security regimes.

Oh I know.  In my last job, I took a lot of flights MSP > MKE or MSP > MDW.  I couldn't justify the MSP > DSM
