Students think they are entittled

I signed a statement this morning confirming that I had a quiz scheduled for Wednesday. One of my students thinks she can use this statement to get out of paying a speeding ticket. I can’t even say I wish her luck, because I don’t think that is a good excuse for speeding.

Another student came into my office for help. I have an open case of bottles of water in my office and she asked if she could “borrow” one. Somehow, I don’t expect her to return a bottle of water to me. I gave her one, but come on, there’s a drinking fountain less than ten feet from the door of my office.  For lunch today, I drank out of a bottle that I refilled for perhaps the tenth time.

Although I can admire the audacity of these two students, there is little else to admire about them.
