A little bit of drama in my school this week, all test related. During one test, one woman realized her answers were all screwed up with only five minutes to go. Since she didn't have to time to fix it, she starts cursing and yelling at the teacher, who promptly threw her out.
Then, in another class, a girl starts crying because she flunked. It's always a little uncomfortable when people cry in class. But then she goes out in the hallway and complains to another teacher (who happens to be passing by) about how bad this teacher is. She did this very loudly and in front of everybody during the class break. Naturally, since she wasn't very discreet, it got back to the teacher.
While I've found both of these teachers to be pretty reasonable, I still don't blame people for being upset sometimes. But these emotional outbursts are a bit weird. Has this happened to anybody else? Or was it because there was a full moon this week or something?

I have to say that I've been reading about some really dysfunctional behavior on this board reported by other nursing students about their classmates. I am beginning to wonder about becoming a nursing instructor. :uhoh21:
I hope this doesn't discourage you since this certainly isn't the norm. It just involved a couple of students. But when there are emotional outbursts like this, you can't help but notice and wonder what's going on, since it is so unusual.
