Facebook schoolyard smackdown

April 1st, 2008 · 105 comments

“Vet school is a sea of studying, testing, drinking and most of all: DRAMA,” reports an anonymous vet-to-be in Ames, Iowa.

Of course, as New York magazine reports this week, Facebook is taking run-of-the-mill classroom sniping to a whole new level of micro-bitchiness. If you have the patience (or the Adderall) to follow it, our submitter gives us a play-by-play of one recent status-update smackdown.

Jessika really wishes people would STOP asking questions at the review sessions, please stop wasting everyone's time because you are dumb!

Vanessa thinks people who think people are dumb should not be in professional school.

Naomi doesn't understand why ppl are upset for others asking questions during a review section. Gee, I wonder what a review section IS for???

You should really think before you "facebook" your thoughts

Vanessa hopes her classmate's future clients get better treatment than their fellow colleagues.

DRAMA IS AWESOME, WE NEED MORE!

    I have to say, Nick is my hero since he seems to be the only person under 30 who seems to get it. Even though his grammar does not live up to my Nazi standards.

      Well, the great thing about flair is that there’s supposed to be a lot of it. So if you put each status update and note on a separate piece, you’ll still be well below the flair minimum.

      That link is…wow. Are all kids being born right now getting names like they’re from a trailer park? Also, I can’t decide if it’s more disturbing that people think “Jalen” (JayLynne, Jalyn, Jaylin) is a name, or that they can’t decide whether it’s a male or female name.

      Although I always figured ‘Jessika’ was just an ethnic spelling of some sort.

      I think “If there are no stupid questions, then what kinds of questions do stupid people ask?” should be tattoed on the douchebag’s head.

      My money isn’t being spent so someone can use classtime to buddy up to the professor and show off how closely they payed attention in class, so they can nitpick slides or ask irrelevant or obviously unanswerable questions.

    • #7.4   Total Douche bang

      Stupid people don’t know enough to ask questions, that’s why they’re stupid. Also, the nature of the questions isn’t addressed, and review sessions are to recap what you don’t quite get, not to sit there quietly with your thumb up your ass and hope for an “A”, when you realize you know “F” about the material.
      It has been my experience that the people who did ask “irrelevant or obviously unanswerable questions” were gone by week two (this being an obvious sign they were in over their head with the material), or at least by the first test. Plus, people have often asked questions that I haven’t thought of, the answer usually giving me a better understanding of the material. In my experience, I am fortunate enough to say that I’ve learned the art of learning from other people’s mistakes, as well as my own.
      And it’s TOTAL Douche, get it right!

    They’re so catty, hounding each other like that. What a pack of bitches – now they’ve left Jessica feline bad because they snapped at her. The way Vanessa keeps rabbiting on about her pet peeve is beastly. She’s so dogged about it too- stubborn as a mule. Although JeessiKaa doesn’t seem like the quiet mousey type either – she comes within a whisker of being plain ole aggressive, and I think her attitude is A-paw-ling.

    It’s actually kind of hard to tell whose side to take on this. It could go either way. Jessika could be one of those people that hate when others ask questions, or she could just be annoyed by that one or two people who ask questions for either no reason, or they really should go talk to the teacher/teachers assistant at another time. If the later is the case, then those other girls are really over reacting…heck, even if Jessika is stuck up, those other girls are really over reacting…

    no you fools, review sessions aren’t for asking questions, they are for summarizing the course content into one or two lectures a short time before the exam.

    All of you who say it’s ok to ask lots of questions at a review session misses the point entirely. It’s review of the ENTIRE course, not a Q and A session that deals with specific issues.

    if you have stupid questions* , be sure that no one else wants to hear them, and save them for the f***ing office hours! That’s why profs and T.A.’s make sure to be in their office for 3-4 scheduled hours a week. To answer your idiotic questions!!

    *Stupid Questions – these are questions that ask professors about irrelevant details that while related to the lectures are besides the current point of the lecture. You will probably learn more about these details in more advanced courses or maybe they are presented in the text but not important enough to address in the lecture.

    Really, I see fools like Vanessa in my lectures all the time. For example, the guy in my computer science class who finds a lecture on how data is stored in memory the perfect time to ask about how a banks memory system works… “dear professor, how can a bank hold so many names in its database!” Whereupon the professor goes on a rant about bank computer systems, while the class becomes increasing irritated at the students incessant nodding at the professor during his explanation, and the fact that we aren’t learning anything that will be on the exam.

      oh jo. but what you don’t seem to grasp is that the stuff on the exam is not always the stuff you need in real life and that the exam might be changed based on what you have or have not covered. Here is a real college lesson for you, PLAY YOUR PROF’S INTERESTS AGAINST HIM/HER.

      I once had a prof who hated the French (don’t ask) but the more we could get him ranting on how much he hates the French the LESS STUFF THERE WOULD BE ON THE NEXT TEST because we hadn’t covered it.

      Depends on the review session style. At my drama farm, I mean vet school, all review sessions are Q&A and the professors do not prepare material. The point is to ask questions to clear up stuff you don’t understand. If I don’t get a concept I will beat it to death at the review session and I don’t care how annoyed everyone else is, I’m paying $18k a year to get this crap.

      On the other hand the people that show up to review sessions and ask things like “I read x and y in z study, how do you think that affects the information on slide 37 viewed in the context of global warming” deserve to be shot.

    As a survivor of Vet School, i’m going to guess these squablers are in their second year (aka- the year of hell) when the pressure and tension reach an all time high. When I went (before the age of Facebook) they way to “air” your grievance was to go complain to the Dean. As you can imagine, he just loved people interupting him to complain because someone was writing too loudly or had sat in your seat. It got to the point where some of my classmates on exam day would steal the seat of those with the highest gradepoint average in attempt to mess with their head and cause them to not do as well on the exam so the grading curve would be more generous. Fun Times kids, fun times.

      I miss Ames…

      when I was a kid I wanted to go to ISU and be a Vet, but then I went to the Iowa State Fair and saw a video of a cat being declawed… changed my mind that very moment…

      Now that I see all the drama going on, I guess it’s for the better, huh?

    mellow mellow, I really doubt that some stressed out snarkiness makes anyone think less of your school or its students. No need to distance yourselves.

    if they’re the type of ‘question askers’ that used to piss me off in class (i.e. much like shoelessjo was referring to), then team jessika all the way.

    i was an pharmacy technician instructor for a techincal college for four years and i agree with jessika, there are questions that pertain to the entire class such as: “should we do all of the review questions on page 75 or just the even ones?” however there are questions that should be left to office hours.

    once i was reviewing a lecture on the male reproductive system and a student raised her hand and asked “what is that white stuff that comes out of the tip of the…”

    i cut her off right there…but i can understand poor jessika’s frustration

    I’m not surprised to see people like that in a college, of all places . All the people that graduate and get their 1st job brag about every stupid class they took except the one they FORGOT to take that teaches them “people skills” . LOL YOU FAIL AT LIFE JESSIKA (and so does your name) .

    I am a member of this class, though I wasn’t involved in this drama. Just for clarification, we were asked to hold all questions until the end of the review session. The plan was to go through all the exam objectives, then have Q & A at the end. Going through the objectives alone takes almost 2 hours. We got sidetracked several times by questions, prolonging the review session for those people that didn’t have questions. That’s how this whole thing got started.

    P.S. I enjoy the drama … checking facebook every 5 minutes for status updates is more fun than listening to a boring neuroanatomy lecture about motor coordination.

      So, it was the TA’s lack of class control that caused the whole deal?

    • #39.2   Mishee bang

      So, while you are going over the exam objectives, you are all sitting there quietly “listening” while simultaneously talking shit on facebook? or do you wait to get back to the dorm to login to facebook and start slinging the shit??

      and also, just imagine how hard it would be to check facebook updates if you had NO motor coordination!!!

    sweet, i love this post!
    facebook really is the future of passive aggressiveness.
    i have a roommate who sent me a long, negative, accusatory message on facebook 3 days after i got pissed at him for doing something, which then erupted into a crazy, huge mess that eventually involved law enforcement…

    facebook is dangerous. but i love reading the drama just as much as the next person.

    I’m in this class and not actually involved in this drama. Technically, the review session was for going through a list of certain topics, in a format where the professor reads the question and gives the answer. Part of the reason questions were asked to be held for later was becasue the professor came in on her own time, after hours, and wanted to keep things from getting too long. Another reason is because in the previous review session, students kept asking the same question over and over again, and every time the professor said “that won’t be on the test.” And the thing is, most of the other questions can be easily answered by looking in the textbook or in the class notes. So really, Jessika is right, but it probably wasn’t a great decision to express her frustration on facebook. This is because, for some reason, a large majority of our class takes a simple expression of vexation as a personal attack. I don’t know why.

    My guess would be less time checking in on Facebook and more time checking in on Textbook would fix a lot of this?

    Either way, I loved it! Start to finish, they all rock. Vet School and Facebook! Whoo! These are totally the folks I want expressing my dog’s anal glands.

    You have to love how almost everyone on here was all “Jessika (I hate that spell, too!) is a bitch! How dare she not allow people to ask questions!” Then, it’s found out they’re being retard and asking the same questions over and over, when they were asked not to ask any in the first place. Considering how they overacted to her comments, I’m not surprised they’re retards. If I ever get a vet named Vanessa, I’m taking my pet else where.

    this is exactly like law school – which is just as much drama exacerbated by the natural aggression of law students. thank god, thank god, i went there before facebook got popular. i can only wonder how much worse it would have been – we all brought laptops to class.

    So my boyfriend lives in a house with four other people, and one of his roommates (who is certifiably psychotic) regularly starts fights with his other roommates by posting inflammatory status messages on her facebook. Frequently, the roommates do not find out for days that she has in fact been fighting with them because they don’t check facebook very often.

    It’s fun. :)

    BTW, I love this site!

    Where I live, “Jessika” is the correct spelling, and nobody’s ever going to take you seriously again if you name your kid “Vanessa”. And as for the general intelligence level of the commenters on this site, I don’t know what to say. Let’s just hope that I’ll never ever have to meet anyone of you in real life.

    I kind of get Jessika’s pain.
    I had a mandatory computer class at my uni. Actual question: “So when you move the mouse thing, then the little arrow moves too?”
    Who said there were no stupid questions?
    Of course, Jessika’s review session might not have been mandatory.
