Dread Posted January 29, 2008 Report Share Posted January 29, 2008 Students who don't take responsibility for their actions piss me off... Well if your talking about me then I have I have to thank you because when I read your comment I automatically started doing this science project that off for like the longest time because you made me think I haven't been taking responsibility for that class. So anyway, I did it and got an A on the project which gave me a B in his class which means I don't have a D in his class. :happy: Thanks Dread! Good. Sorry about the curtness of that comment but you hit me on the wrong day. I had three students blame me for work they should have done and directions they should have read before getting bad marks on assignments. Good for you for taking initiative. Too many students these days try and sail through school without doing anything, and I happen to teach at an alternate school where kids who get things done are kids who bust their asses. It's given me a lot more appreciation for that kind of intiiative among the high school age. I think I'm about to win the thread, yay. Well where do I begin, a friend of mine, a guy who in Jr. High I may have called my Best Friend passed away on Saturday, he was 19 years old, that'll typically get a guy riled up right? There is no certainty on how he died. He was in Mexico on a vacation with his older brother, the story goes that they were drinking from 12PM-3PM, the older brother is sent to his room because he is done, my friend is left at the bar (hotel, swim-up bar) the older brother wakes up at 8 the next morning and doesn't know where my friend is, the hotel staff takes him aside 2-3 hours later and tell him my friend was found, having apparently fallen off the balcony from 10 story's up. The fishy part is number 1, the railing is chest high according to the brother and number 2, the Mexican police were very lax in their job, they didn't even question the older brother. The whole thing doesn't feel right. Maybe he did stumble off the edge drunk, maybe not regardless it sucks. Cherry on the cake though is I go to the 7-11 to grab some snacks/comfort food around 1AM (the wire just picked up the story at 8PM Mon. Night) and Tuesday's Winnipeg Sun's are there, I look at one and my friend is the cover story, full page cover for him, and there is a stick-n advertisement that covers his entire face. I have half a mind to grab a bullhorn and go to the offices tomorrow and show how pissed I am. This sucks. Fucking Hell! Kellen, I'm sorry dude. Is the Canadian Foreign Affairs ministry getting involved? Shit like this happens too often. It may have happened to me when I was down there if my friend's dad (who took us) was, shall we say, a tough guy, who took care of four guys who were forcing my frind and I into an alley to buy drugs. Skeevy situation. I know that a couple from BC were also murdered down there with no investigation as well. I hope justice is served and I suppose that's the best thing that can happen. Thoughts are with you, man. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
