Next week is Spring Break at my University. Most of the students are going away to fancy vacations in exotic places-- I just heard one saying to another that she's going to Spain, the other replied that she'd gone to Spain last year and is going this year to France.
The custom is for professors to cancel afternoon classes on the Friday before Spring Break. Not only have I not canceled class, I've scheduled an exam.... and denied all requests for makeups.
That's the kinds of jerk I am.
