"I Thought It Was Your Turn to Buy the Donuts!"

A psychology professor at Sacramento State University walked out of an undergraduate class last week because the student responsible for bringing snacks that day had not done so, The Sacramento Bee reports. The professor, George Parrott, defends the snack requirement as a way of encouraging students to work collectively. A handout they receive on the first day of class makes the requirement clear, offers examples of acceptable snacks, and suggests that two people take responsibility for each day’s snack, in case one forgets. Still, students are crying foul, saying they were denied an opportunity to review material for a midterm examination. University officials say they will investigate.
I suggest making amends with some cream puffs.

I wonder why they need munchies...
