I'm going to start by saying that I'm not a grudge holder...I'm quick to forgive and forget. Over my life there's only 3 people that I'd really consider "getting back" at, and even then I'm not going to go out of my way to do so. If the opportunity presents itself then I'd probably do it.......this may be one of those occasions. The person involved is my "friends" former professor ("friend" as in we're close an were dating at the time). I understand there will occasionally be friction between professors and students, but this guy took it to a whole new level. As far as being a human being I think he's the worst type. He was on an absolute power trip, and a total *******. He did everything he could make make sure you knew he was in charge, from breaking your projects and drawing on your drawings to calling you out in front of everyone for no reason. He was pompous, arrogant, and childish. My girlfriend had him for a semester and he came down overly hard on her. Perhaps it was because she was an attractive girl that he didn't have a chance with, or perhaps it was because it was his only way of getting to me..I'll never know what it was, but this guy was a ****ing piece of work. He'd give her INCREDIBLE amounts of work and one week before the end of the semester he told my girlfriend that "her project didn't work and she had to start over, or she'd fail the semester". After a semester of no sleep and her coming home stressed out and crying I'd had enough. I took her project to my former professor to look at, she presented it and got th thumbs up. He gave her advice on how to present it but most of all confirmed that it was a solid project and that failing her would be out of the question. We also went to the dean to complain about him and he gave us advice on avenues to pursue if the worst case scenario happened (the avenue was a peer review of the project over which the professor would still have the final say on the grade....no help). Anyway the semester ended and he passed her with a solid D. We were pissed but the alternative could have created more push back in the future, so we decided to let it be. Two students were selected from each studio for a competition with a scholarship as a prize..he chose two students from his class......one was a girl...we'll call her Becky. An award winning guest judge was invited to review the projects.....and he absolutely BLASTED that professor for his ignorance.....the professor had thrown out the curriculum and the result were two awful projects...Becky broke down crying....one of the better days of that year. So ANYWAY.........fast forward a few years...Becky graduates and moves away with a peer of mine. After about 9 months a co-worker confronts him threatening to shoot him...apparently my buddy's married co-worker was having an affair with Becky........his wife found out and now he was threatening my buddy....uncool. He quit his job and moved away..that's the last I'd heard of her. and I'm sitting at my local starbucks......and in walks this (married) professor.....with Becky.......i thought that was weird...doubly weird when the server (a buddy) told my they come in and "canoodle" every now and then....he paid and they left in teh same car.......and then...they walk in together the very next morning....together...having come in the same car. Signs are pointing to this prick having an affair on his wife with whom he has a child. Obviously these are signs, but coming in for dinner one evening and breakfast the next day don't bode well. Combine that with the fact that she has slept with married men before, was selected as the "best in her class" for a competition with money on the line, and that he drug my then girlfriend through the mud do I consider giving this evidence to his wife? I'd do it in an anonymous manner....but I'm sure he'llk now who it came from....but damn it'd feel good to take this bastard down. The lowliest of the low type of person...preys on the week and tries to strong arm those he can't roll over. Thoughts?
