College professors get angry when students sleep in their class? When I was schoolin', they never seemed to care, and would let students sleep away. I guess they figured if you want to pay to nap, so be it.

Hahah. Glad to see the guy laugh. Teaching this class is probably a lot like watching Star Wars for the 1000th time.

I told my students on the first day I didn't mind if they slept, but they should try not to snore. I slept through my share of 8:30 classes.

I did take issue with the douchebag who had his music loud enough for the rest of the class to hear. When he remained oblivious to my death glares, I stalked over, unplugged his earbuds and took his phone away. Numbnuts kept sitting there with his earbuds in.

/one of the comments I got at the end of the semester was that my class was worth getting up and staying awake for
//rather full of myself over that one

I've always enjoyed the stories of professors getting the entire class to go out in the hallway, turning off the lights and making a noise in the hallway so they wake up and freak out and wonder what the hell is going on.

No one has ever fallen asleep in my class...yet.

That happened to me. Was sleeping in a big lecture hall. Woke up, and jumped out of my seat. Everyone turned to look.

It's rude to the professor, but as long as the sleeper isn't disturbing the other paying students (and wasting their time and money), then let 'em sleep.

Had a professor back in the day in Control Systems that used to love picking on kids that fell asleep. Two I recall were

1- Sitting down next to the kid and continuing the lecture
2- Pulling out a megaphone and yelling at the kid

/was the best professor in the dept
//not sure how many days he brought the bullhorn to class waiting for a kid to fall asleep

When I was a kid (about 30 years ago), my dad told me ALL kinds of hilarious stories that happened at the plant he worked at. He was a supervisor, so he was everywhere from offices to docks to etc. etc...
One guy in the office had fallen asleep and they were just about to prank him when the main boss shows up at the plant. They figured the guy would get fired on the spot. But, the guy apparently sensed someone walking in the doorway, woke up, said, "Amen," crossed himself and raised his head then was 'shocked' to see the boss had walked in.
My father said the boss went from a mad-as-hell expression to completely embarrassed, then even worse when the guy made up something about praying for someone's kid for some BS reason...

Professor seemed kind of mean at first.

Jeeze, here he is apparently trying to tell them how to make an atomic bomb and this guy is sleeping through it.

Had a Maths prof who would wake up the sleeper, have him move to the front row, and torment him for the rest of the class. The prof wait for him to nod off again and smack his desk with the long wooden pointer that he used.

Had a friend who was bored in Chem class and just sat there with her head in her hand. The prof thought she was sleeping, so he threw an eraser (long before white boards) at her head to wake her up. At the last second, she turned her hand, caught the eraser, put it on her desk, and put her head back in her hand. The prof resigned at the end of term.

This didn't happen, did it?

The best one I've heard, the instructor let the student sleep, had everybody leave very quietly at the end of class, and had the next class come in very quietly. When she finally woke up, she was in the middle of a completely different class with a different instructor.

I would totally start asking questions about the lecture. I *BELONG* here, dammit.
