Someone Has To Be The Adult

Most of the difficulties in my life would improve greatly if someone would act like the adult. Since most of the people who I deal with on a daily basis are freshmen, I guess that means that it's me. Today I am taking the time to email the bottom 15%* of the students in my calculus class something like "wtf, if you expect to pass this class, you're going to need to do something different from what you're currently doing." Once again: stating the obvious.

*Not based strictly on averages but instead on across-the-board low performance on homework, attendance, and the test. Someone who aced the test but with low homework scores didn't get flagged today.
