I Remember You

Biology. They had an assignment on genetic drift--a video and then a virtual lab. 

Now that I have videos working, I showed the video. I explained the assignment. I released them to work. 

In the chat, a student wrote: 

Wait a second I remember you-

I get this a lot. I replied with something noncommittal. If the student pursues the question, we can chase down where they remember me from. But virtually they haven't really been all that interested.

However, this girl then gave me more information: 

I'm the kid who screamed its Wednesday my dudes and you didn't like me after that

Ah. Yes, I remember that she thinks I hate her. And since there's nothing I can do to disabuse her of this notion, I let it go. 

The next time I see her, she'll have to remind me that I hate her and why. I guess this is a game we'll play until she graduates or grows out of this notion. It'll be interesting to see which it is.

  4. It must be important for her. May she grow out of it.

  5. Sounds like she's fishing for you to go "Noooo! Of course I don't hate you!"

    1. Only her. I mean, dude is one of those things we say out here, but she might have been going for comic effect.

  7. Maybe you should tell her that you don't hate her. Obviously that is something what bother her.

    1. I don't think it bothers her. I think she enjoys it. Because I have said I don't hate her, and she insists that I do.

  9. Kids tend to get notions stuck in their heads.

  10. I don't see why you'd remind someone that they hate you. It seems like if she really thought you didn't like her over that she wouldn't bring it up in hopes that you would forget the incident.

    1. You'd think. But she likes being hated, so she must bring it up.

  11. SMH. Kids... How funny, though, Liz! Keep us posted if she says it again the next time she sees you.

  12. I remember the original post. Weird that even virtually she remembers that "you hate her". I guess it gives her something to vent about with her friends, lol.
