A rant for Friday afternoon

Forget Marmageddon – the university is clearly facing staplageddon. And it has for at least the last seven years. Why don’t students own staplers? How am I meant to keep control of assignments that are handed in on loose sheets of paper that aren’t stapled together? Half of them only have the student’s name of the first sheet. All it takes is one staple. One, solitary staple.  Is it TOO much to ask?

I think I’ll carry a stapler with me at all times and charge a dollar a time. I’d make a fortune.

P.S.  For those that aren’t kiwi, Marmageddon is the name given to the Marmite crisis here – there is no Marmite in the shops. NO MARMITE!? How can anyone survive?

P.P.S. Sorry, students, for getting at you like this. But stapling your work together really does make it easier for me and it’s less likely that a section of your assignment will go missing.
