College Instructors

I am in college. Sometimes an instructor teaches more than one class. I was signed up for three in a row, two in the summer and one in the fall. Well, life happens. I ended up restructuring my course load by dropping a bunch of classes and signing up for others that fit into my schedule better. As far as I know, I don't owe anyone an explanation for why I drop classes; it's my life and isn't anyone else's business. However, those three classes with that one instructor were dumped; sorry, but they didn't fit. Anyway, apparently this was taken as an offense by this instructor. My adviser confronted me by asking me twice if I had a problem with my instructors when I went to plan for the spring semester. Another instructor treated me like dirt in his class and even alluded to me having a "romantic falling out" with that instructor and actually asked if I dated instructors. Whoa, now. I didn't realize that reorganizing my schedule due to personal life circumstances was cause for speculations, assumptions, and hurt feelings. I just can't believe it. What is wrong with people? Gotta love how people look for drama and problems that aren't even there. I am so annoyed. I am just a student with my own life issues and here I am dealing with people older than my own parents treating me like this. I am an adult paying my own way through school and darn it, I shouldn't have to deal with this silliness. What the heck is going on here?

I totally understand how you feel. Don't let it get to you. You don't owe them explanations about dropping classes due to your personal life. Some people...
