Definitely been there -- did you ever notice that, based on performance, no student has English as their primary language? :-)

I hope that my J-Term paper was graded in the first hour, not the 4th-20th hours!

I appreciate that cartoon now in a way that I never could have before when I was on the other side of the desk!

P.S. It was right about the box of chocolates, too.

...you've confirmed my deepest fears!

My husband has worked as adjunct faculty at Wesley and Marymount, and I've watched him (from a safe distance) suffer through this phenomenon. On the other hand, you're grading Grad School papers. Nothing like grading undergrads, for whom a D is a cause for celebration because they PASSED!
