10 Reasons Why to be a Professor

#1 You can say anything you want and get away with it, because you have a Ph.D.

#2 You can wear a suite coat with anything, jeans, t-shirt, or even shorts!

#3 You can wear jeans to teach class and no-one can say one thing. Why? Because you have a Ph.D. and that is allowed.

#4 You can grade subjectively, you do me wrong, you get a D. You bring me coffee, and you get an A. 

#5 You can have a coffee marker in your office!

#6 You can have any hair-style you want, and it will be acceptable. Why? Because you’ll have a Ph.D. and that is allowed. 

#7 You can wear outfits that don’t match, but it will be acceptable. Why? Because you’ll have a Ph.D. and that is allowed.

#8 You can fish all summer long!!!

#9 You can pull a cigar or pipe out of your suite -coat pocket and smoke in class. Why? Because you’ll have a Ph.D. and that is allowed.

#10 You can assign 30 page papers to 18 year-olds on a subject you need to learn about, and learn from them.

 

You have any to add?

    I don’t think I’ll have anything to do w/ the coffee or the smoking…..but I am looking foward to the other perks of getting the PhD.

    Well I might get called out on the subjective grading….I would be teaching math.

    #11 You can get lab assistants to do any dangerous demos for you, so you don’t risk your own neck in lab. (I don’t know how many times I was electrocuted in undergrad because of this.)
