Unfiltered Story #32729

London, UK | Unfiltered | May 26, 2017

I am a year out of graduating from University. I’ve kept in contact with mostly all of the second years as they are amazing people – spare one person, let’s call him idiot. Throughout my final year, he caught wind that we had a coffee machine (paid out of my money) in our studio. Whenever I wasn’t looking, he would help himself to it. It’s also presumably why my favourite mug went missing, but that isn’t something proven done by him. Anyway, the time in which this story takes place is in September, the month where the Second Years go into the third year, and select their studios for it. I’m on Facebook on a lazy Monday and see the following conversation, regarding the ongoing studio selection.

Idiot: [Student] you are a ledge! I’m also disgusted by the level of incompetence and disorganisation of the uni once again, especially towards this week. I wont pay if I don’t get my studio choice. Won’t be going with [Other Lecturer] so I guess ill be going with [Another Lecturer] who looks a bit like a paedophile…sweeeeeet 🙂

(I raise my eyebrow at his comment, but refuse to get involved. It’s an hour later when I re-visit the conversation out of interest to see what happened to find this:)

Idiot: Bet this guy loves 10 year olds lmao!

(The idiot also added a picture, and full details of the lecturer he was referring to all along. MY Dissertation Teacher for the previous year, who not only got me a B in my eventual assessment, but was an amazing role model too. I’m furious at this arsehole’s disgusting slander but as I finish typing up a retort, a wave of restraint hits me, and I back down before posting it. I actually spend an entire day weighing out my options – do I chastise him for his idiocy? Or do I let it go? It takes the encouragement of a friend of mine (who was also taught by this lecturer) when she says she would be doing the same as me to finally post a comment:

Me: Wow [Idiot]. First off, you’re a f*****g moron. Second, everything you have just said regarding [My Lecturer] could be easily reported to him as libel. You do realise that means you could easily get expelled from University, or even arrested right? Finally, considering this comment exists on a space where NUMEROUS students chat and are probably in close contact with the Lecturer, I don’t believe it would take a lot of effort for him to be brought to the attention of it, you jackass. Delete this now, before someone actually does it.

(Unfortunately, the host of the comment thread deleted it all for him. So it is unlikely that the idiot ever got my message.)
