My Pet Peeves in Life

April 18th, 2013

Pet Peeve #413: When a college ¬†instructor says to buy the newest edition of a book (this is for an art class). The newest edition is $125. The edition that it replaced? $10 with free shipping. WTH?!!! When I had math last semester, I mentioned to the teacher this problem, and he said: “Go ahead and buy the edition before. The school says to get the newest edition, but I don’t care if you get the one before. There aren’t many questions that have been changed anyway.” I think I ran across something like 8-9 questions that were different. Buying the older math book saved me over $100. Can you believe that? No wonder folks can’t afford higher education. Geez!
