35 Funny Things Professors Read About Themselves on RateMyProfessors
College professors can be particularly brutal, but since the dawn of RateMyProfessors.com, students have been able to fight back against that brutality. Sure, they may still flunk the class, but not before airing their grievances on the site originally intended for a serious critique of educators. As a professor, you have to wonder what you did to a student who writes, “I hope you get the bird flu and die. However, before you die, you understand that you gave it to your wife and family and they all die. And then you die with the knowledge that you killed them.”
Whew. That’s a tirade usually reserved for movie villains. Certainly, the professor needed to be wary of his surroundings afterward, not open any suspicious packages and maybe even learn self-defense. Which might be why he was able to live to tell about it, as well as submit his rating to a Reddit thread, noting that it “always stuck out to him.” Yeah I bet, dude.
To that end, Reddit’s finest educators have rounded up the grades they’ve been given on RateMyProfessor, and there’s a particularly poignant one about Russian roulette that you’ll want to use as your own.
