The Evil Sub

"No, you can't copy his work."

I said this to a student. She balked. She argued. She complained. But I was adamant. One does not copy another student's work.

"You're just evil," the girl told me.

"Thank you for that lovely compliment," I replied.

The girl stopped copying the assignment. And I was satisfied. I didn't even mind the evil comment. I figured I was due. I tend to use that word a lot myself, so it was probably time that a student would throw it back at me.

I appreciate your comments.

I respond to comments* via email, unless your profile email is not enabled. Then, I'll reply in the comment thread. Eventually. Probably.

*Exception: I do not respond to "what if?" comments, but I do read them all. Those questions are open to your interpretation, and I don't wish to limit your imagination by what I thought the question was supposed to be.
