From Chicken Soup for the College Soul


Chad was intimidated by the burly professor yelling into his face, “Your work is sloppy! Your study habits are horrible! Your grades are slipping! I hate sloppy work! I hate poor study habits! And I hate that shirt you are wearing!”

The class was dead silent as the professor chastised Chad for several minutes. Then a collective gasp filled the room when the professor turned and began to yell at the entire class.

“You guys have made it through high school because your mommies babied you. Now you have to grow up! Your mommies are not here!

Chad spoke in a quivering voice. “You’d better be glad my mom’s not here. She bought me this shirt!”
