    Don't let your cell phone ring in class

    YES! They should have the Ushers do this at the movie theatre!

    Dude, while I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiment, I would smack that egomaniac teacher down right in front of the class, in much the same way he threw the phone.

    Hey, I paid for those classes and that is no way to garner respect.



    SO yes, I try to shut my ringer off and if it goes go off, I shut it off and don't answer. The student was a tool but the professor succeeded in being a bigger tool.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    You know that the student was wrong, not only did his cellphone go off, the student was talking & then to rub it in a little more, he continue to talk if when the teacher was walking towards him & was laughing.....

    Don't put yourself in the student's shoes, you would never do such an immature thing.

    The student was wrong but for what the professor did well maybe I need anger management classes but I do not think I would have remained seated after that event

    I think its fake, why WOULD the student be taping that?!

    How did he "know" that the teacher was gonna do that?

    While I have wanted to do that a few times it doesn't warrant the destruction of the student's personal property.

    The video does look a little suspect.

    Its gotta be fake, i mean the camera is obviously on a tripod, the teacher is laughing when smashing the phone, plus he has no right to destroy the students property.

    Anyone ever heard of recording lectures...? I dont think that was setup. When the professor threw the phone it sure didn't look like he was joking. That was straight seriousness.
