From College Misery, April 16, 2013.
I'm teaching a single section of a cross-listed course, one that gets offered in 2 different departments. It's my first rotation with it, so I tracked down a colleague in another department who also teaches it.
"What do you do for the final?" I asked.
"Oh, I stopped giving finals a few years ago. The students hate them. Too much pressure."
I smiled. I just wanted to go home, but I decided to ask anyway. "What do you do instead?"
"Oh, we have a party."
Of course you do, I thought.
