    Potentially Destructive Attitude
    I am taking a class with an adjunct professor. Tonight, he was late for class. He said he couldn't find parking. For 30 minutes.

    The class is supposed to start at 5:30. This is after they rescheduled it (without telling us) from a 5-6:30 class to a 5:30 to 7 p.m. class. Of course, he just keeps on talking at 7, and doesn't let us out until 7:38. p.m.

    I was pissed off. Pissed off.

    I mean, 7 is inconvenient for me. I like to be home for dinner. Hell, I like to pick up my kids. But 7 is too late for that. For someone to whimper about parking and push all of that off, it just pisses me off.

    Now, really, whatever. I mean, it was one night, it's not the end of the world.

    BUT.

    I'm a brat of a person, deep down inside. I get pissed off, and BOOM - I tune out. I don't like the guy, I don't like the class, and I don't really give a shit anymore.

    I'm trying (very hard) to let this go so that I don't have a miserable experience for the entire quarter.

    Why do I have this self-destructive personality? Why oh why?

      Hmm, while I think you're amazing to be considering this in terms of changing your own attitude, one of my biggest peeves is when profs keep me late. Or anyone keeps me late.

      It assumes that I have nothing else important in my life. I hate that. I schedule things back to back, and when you say I should be done, I am gone. It'd rude otherwise. Rude.

      So I'm impressed with your attitude for even thinking twice.

      I just can't afford to be pissed off to the point of doing poorly in the class, that's all. It's the Zuska-way of being pissed that's a problem.

      I did consider shooting him an e-mail, letting him know that I do need to leave at 7 due to family considerations, and if the class goes over again, I will be leaving the classroom. Not a rude e-mail, just perhaps giving him a heads up that people in the classroom have lives. Hello?

      I think sending the email is perfectly reasonable. There's a good chance I would have packed up and left at 7 (certainly by 7:15). It's too bad he couldn't find a parking spot, but the rest of you were there on time and there's no reason to keep you that late. I get annoyed when I'm kept 60 seconds past the end of class!
