Especially if you write as eloquently as you speak!

Girl #1: I can't believe I got such a bad mark on my English essay. I mean, the prof, like, totally hates me because I sit at the back with my friend and we talk the whole class and never pay attention or anything, but just because she hates me doesn't mean she should, like, give me a bad mark.
Girl #2: That's, like, so not fair!

The TA probably graded the paper anyway....but regardless, pissing off your prof on a regular basis is just not smart.

To be honest, I agree with this girl. However, I also don't think pissing off the prof is a good way to get ahead.

yeah honestly..i agree with her too...this is the reason i switched out of an english major...I was at huron where the classes are small enough that the prof really does notice who seems to care (or who seems to suck up) and who doesn't.

maybe just maybe it's because she sits at the back and talks the whole class instead of listening to the lecture that she got a bad grade?? hahaha....

Or perhaps youre wasting your hard earned money and if thats not the case, mommy and daddy's money. Whats the point of wasting money on English when you could be making money doing something you'd actually want to do.

I don't know, paying attention isn't always as necessary as it seems. I was lucky enough my first two years to have pretty much all classes in Nat Sci or NCB..meaning I could sit in the back and chat, then just study the text like I would have anyways and still do well on my exams.
But who knows how they do things in English.

She must be in ENG 020 since, even on main campus, every other course in that faculty tops out at about 30-40 students max -- and you can only get away with an odd comment or question to the person beside you before politely being asked to shut the fuck up by the professor.

Besides, as 5:07 correctly points out, there's probably about an 80% chance that her essay was marked by a TA.

I don't think the point of these quotes is to spur intellectual (relatively speaking 'intellectual') on the subject of what class this was and whether or not the girl is wasting any money or if she HAS money.

The point is that she's dumb.

But since the conversation arose..... I gotta say that people with money more often care less about their education because they aren't spending their OWN money.

Hence why ugg-boots (a frivolous fashion accessory - and a dumb one) are often a sign of retardation.

Just for the record, I have money and this is my opinion.

that last message is missing the word 'debate' after 'intellectual'. ....sorry.

Who gives a shit whether you have money or not? What was the point in leaving us with this information? Are you that insecure that you need to tell people this?

WTF, this is one weird school.

The point of 1:22 mentioning having money might have been to avoid having his/her comments dismissed with claims of "you're just saying bad things about people with money out of spite and envy". If 1:22 is in the same boat as the people being criticized, there isn't really any reason for accusations of bitterness.

who cares? it is an english course

Chances are if she was writing the essay for any other course and did the same thing she probably would have gotten the same mark. I don't see how wether she is wealthy or not applies to this. What applies here is how bad her grammar is when she talks.

Seriously....why do the uggs have to be brought into every single argument on this site??
Not all girls who wear uggs are dumb...it's a pathetic stereotype to put on every girl at Western who wears them.
It's like you see a girl wearing them and you automatically think:
a) she's rich
b) she's dumb
Therefore she doesn't care about school and is just here for the party.

1:22....have you ever tried a pair on?? They may be a frivolous fashion accessory....but they are so comfy!

1:15... uggs may be comfy (i don't really know, I'm a guy), but they look RIDICULOUS!!!!! You girls that wear them are certainly making a fashion statement, that statement being "I want the lowest part of my body to look like an ESKIMO!" Personally I don't think we as Canadians should be perpetuating the rumours that all Canadians live in igloos...

Then there's the fact that in my time at Western (I'm in 3rd yr) they have gone from being basic ugly boots, to resembling something people would have worn while hunting wooly mammoths! If your feet are really that cold either put on warmer socks or see a doctor, because you must have some serious blood circulation problems!

The really ugly, normal ugg boots aren't furry, therefore can't be shaved...

famous celebrities in los angeles wear uggs all year-round so it's not really perpetuating any kind of eskimo stereotype. plus, they *are* cute on some people, but they are awful on others, and that's typical of any fashion trend. finally, they were only a sign of "wealth" a couple years ago before the company stepped up their distribution channels. you can buy them at masonville, now, and not just various high-priced boutiques in toronto.

hmm i dunno, team. those posts are way too long for soemthing that should be simple. money isn't a factor. nor is her choice of footwear. what may, however, have some influence on her essay grade would be her attraction to the frequent use of "like", and perhaps her pissing off her prof on a regular basis, or just generally have no clue whats going on in the class.

Most Uggs are considered desert boots and shouldn't even be worn in a Canadian winter. You might as well just wear your slippers to class.

oh for fuck sakes!
The girl is a moron. Uggs or no uggs.
I HATE uggs. HATE THEM! But does everything really need to become "oh stupid girl was wearing uggs...uggs, uggs, UGGS"?
You don't need UGGS to be a fool, and having money does not make you a fool either.
Saying stupid shit like these two morons is what makes one a fool.

fools.

2:26 -"famous celebrities in los angeles wear uggs all year-round so it's not really perpetuating any kind of eskimo stereotype."
actually the celebs in LA know the true purpose behind an UGG and will only wear it indoors with their lounge clothing. And if you model your fashion choices after some D-list celeb who goes against the grain and wears the "boots" outdoors, than perhaps it's time to find someone else to idolize.

weren't uggs originally worn by surfers in austrailia?

YES, that has been established, PLEASE, this Ugg subject needs to DIE (and yes, I hate uggs!), but not much more can be said.

This girl's choice of language, as well as choosing to sit at the back of the class and jabber probably earned her grade. Uggs? Who fucking cares? they are just boots.

lol, I'm pretty sure that people aren't wearing uggs because they're "comfy" Otherwise why aren't they simply wearing a generic pair of comfortable shoes?

UGGS came from Australia.
DO YOU THINK THEY WEAR THEM THERE BECAUSE IT'S COLD?
Erm, no.
It's a fashion statement.
Why don't you bitter Westerners complain about $400 jeans? About Louis purses? You seriously NEED to get over the Ugg phenomena. At least adapt to something else to complain about, jeez.

people. . lets complain about SOMETHING ELSE!!! ps. if ur gonna talk in class. . don't go! stay at home . . .

you would think it would be logical for people to stay at home if they're going to talk, except class creates just another social locale where people can catch up on the day's gossip. Plus, you can't fault the people who are really just trying to figure out what the prof's talking about>peer clarification can be essential.
