The lecturer has resorted to victimising her in class. He clearly treats the other students equally well but her. If she switches seats to the back of the class, she would be called out because he wants to be able to see all his students and not have anyone hiding behind, while the fact is that he barely notices her existence in the front row. If she and her friend are talking (about the class exercise and not anything irrelevant), she gets called upon but not her friend (because her friend is the lecturer’s pet). She gets threatened to be seated elsewhere so that she won’t be able to talk to her friend. Before this, he mockingly told her that if she feels she is so smart she doesn’t have to come to class, just stay for the lesson and leave when they’re doing exercises so she doesn’t have to bother the rest of the class with her chatter.
Come on lah, is this primary school or something? Why are you being so fucking dictatorial? We were NOT talking shop, we were doing your bloody work together!
It’s one thing to dislike a lecturer as a class collectively as was the case before, but when the lecturer and you mutually dislike each other and both are not afraid to show it, it becomes a private battle in what should be a professional setting.
Of all the comments received in the previous post, every single one has urged her to continue the class. But like hell am going to stand being singled out for every little thing that annoys the sight of him.
LIKE HELL AM GOING TO STAND BEING SUBTLY VICTIMISED ALONE FOR BEING SOMEONE HE DOES NOT LIKE!
If the decision disappoints you, dear reader, sorry for failing the test of getting along with difficult people, or the test of perseverance. It’s not in self’s nature to be bullied, or to continue allowing it. If you think am making a lame justification, on one hand it could be, on the other it could not. There’s always two sides to a coin and since can’t please everybody, the side of the coin have to please is self’s side.
There’s a possibility GPA may not be compromised by quitting class. May be able to pay a fine to unregister from taking the exam, thus GPA will only count the other registered subjects.
If that fails, it’s okay. Am willing to forfeit a good GPA – haven’t self been always trying to remind self that grades shouldn’t be placed on a pedestal? Am not willing to compromise self’s beliefs for the sake of getting two measly credits and endure discrimination for four hours a week. Edit: it really is possible to drop a subject after verifying it! The penalty costs about RM100. Am going to do it this Monday.
She is quitting her language class.
