Microeconomics? Megasuckonomics, more like it!

Our Search and Retrieval professors apologized for the fact that we are in the crappiest room in the crappiest building on campus (Dennison 269, if you're counting) and explained that SI is too stupid to realize they've grown too big for their own facilities, so we just have to beg to LS&A every semester and they throw us those rooms that aren't fit for their own uses.

Okay, maybe those weren't their exact words.

Anyway, the point is, they knew we had these complaints, they understood them, but they explained that this is why it had to be this way. I can accept that. They also told us that some of the pages in our electronic coursepack would be crooked but that at least we wouldn't have to pay for a paper coursepack. I appreciate that.

Oh, and speaking of paying for things...

My Choice and Learning professors told us yesterday that we had to have their two textbooks and coursepack (total cost: almost $250). I waited for their explanation or apology and it never came. Do they not realize how expensive their damn class is? Do they not care? Doesn't it bother them that because of insanely elevated textbook fees, their students already hated the class before the first class session began?

Apparently not. They asked if we had any questions about the textbooks, but I couldn't think of any that I could ask in a polite classroom setting or that wouldn't adversely affect my grade in the class.

Some strange feeling seized me when I read your comment, Cheryl.
Does Cheryl's post look strange here?
No. So Cheryl, what is the point in your comment?
There always has to be some point.
Nothing personal tho.

Anderson
