Would this have offended you? Or would you have found it funny? adult content

In my college english class last week class was just ending but all the students were packing up to leave before class was quite over. The professor was still going over the homework assignment and so he said "whoa your bong will still be there when you get home!" I didn't really think it was funny, but everyone else cracked up. I paid for the class to learn how to write, not be treated like every other slacker high school graduate who couldn't care less about the class. Today when we did the evaluations of the professor I reminded him of the joke (and others he has said like it: this was not his first time saying something like that) and told him I really didn't think it was funny. What would you have done? Am I overreacting?

  • No, your feelings are valid and understandable. I think the joke was funny too and I don't smoke pot. But it was highly innapropriate and unprofessional not something a professor should be saying to his class imho.

  • Sounds like the professor is sick of the pot heads and can probably tell the diff between you and them. But if he kept saying stuff like that over and over again I would be offended.

  • I think you are over reacting even though I didnt think it was funny either. I would have just kept my mouth shut. It's just a joke stupid joke

  • I wouldn't have liked it either, I probably wouldn't have said anything just given him a dirty look and left. I think it's alright that you wrote that in his evavluation, it wasn't an apropiate or funny thing to say
