Professor disappointed to see an empty classroom, mails students to find out he committed a hilarious blunder!
A professor was distraught that none of his students showed the courtesy to attend one of his classes. However, he later realized that his blunder was the cause of his unhappiness. He took to social media to share the hilarious incident.
Professor Joseph Mullins took to Twitter to share a funny incident from his professional life. The professor stated that he was disappointed to see an empty class when he turned up for a lecture and decided to mail his students enquiring about their absence. Well, within seconds, his students informed him that he was sitting in the wrong classroom.
Mullins tweeted, "Today, nobody showed up to my 8.15 am class. 0 students of about 40. Sitting in the empty room, I email them, trying to disguise my hurt feelings. 2 mins later, I get a reply: 'Professor, we think you might be in the wrong room.' So anyway off I go to live in a hole forever."
In another post, Mullins added, "My wife really wants me to mention that I was sleep deprived because I got up at 4 am to play Dungeons and Dragons with my friends in Australia.”
The post left a lasting impression. Netizens were amused and laughed out loud.
One user wrote, "I am dying but laughing *with* you I swear! I teach an 8 am class this semester and would not at all be surprised if I did this. 8 am is not my jam."
Others shared similar experiences.
Another person stated, "If it makes you feel better one day my PI came in ranting about how none of her undergrad students showed up for their final exam, turns out she showed up to give the exam on the wrong day."
