Beware of putting anyone in a box (i.e., they all suck). There are always
going to be those that don't think like you do.
I have watched the video several times, and the words "they all suck"
do not appear anywhere in the video.
I'd suggest to Branford, if he really feels that way, to do himself, and his
students, a favor and refer them to a someone who likes to teach.
The word "if" demonstrates that you obviously have no idea how
Branford feels. Therefore, you should watch the video again, and find
out. This time, though, please try not to fall asleep.
Good teachers can easily overlook personal quirks and still provide a
service to the students.
The work ethic is not a personal quirk. It is the only thing which
will save the planet.
My answer to this would be to throw it back on the instructor. "The problem
with instructors is they think all students should all have the same goals
as they do."
If you have something better than the work ethic, then let's hear
about it. So far all I hear is nyou shooting off your mouth.,
Which, of course, I don't believe. There are plenty of
dedicated instructors who don't have low opinions of their students but
you'd have a hard time finding many here. :-)
I personally have a low opinion of anyone who does not subscribe to
the work ethic. You should be ashamed of yourself.
