Well, That’s Not at All Ominous

November 28, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

A message posted to my history class’s electronic notice board by the professor during Thanksgiving break:

For reasons which I will not go into, [REDACTED] will no longer be a t.a. for this class.  He may continue to offer his assistance, but please know he has no formal affiliation with this class and it is my advice that you do not seek his help or accept his offers to help if he makes them.

This message, particularly the warning at the end, was reiterated in class today, with the added notes that Sacked TA might actually be dangerous to seek further assistance from, and, “You all know my other TA, he is not crazy and will continue to help you out.”  Pressed for further details, he would say only, “I’m a doctor, but not a medical doctor.”

All I can think of now is the scene in Real Genius where the guy just loses his shit in the common room.

    I would presume that you are, indeed, not the sacked TA?

      Me? No, indeed. I’m not a TA at all, I’m just taking the class.

    Maybe the axe-wielding chap you saw was working for that TA and they’re trying to hush it up…
