... my classmate who essentially told me "Well some people did well (meaning, himself) so you must not know how to write"
Assuming that is what was really said, then that arrogant assh0le
is probably an obsequious sycophant who has chanced to win favor from an overworked instructor who obviously did not read the papers carefully enough to offer constructive feedback.
Since that assh0le implies a knowledge of how to write, why is he in the course, other than to satisfy a requirement? Perhaps he would like to become a teaching assistant, or better yet he could wield his great authority by becoming a Hall Monitor
. I can only laugh, as such types make such a big deal out of being law students.
This reminds me of the conceited preppy female dog who went to Vandy law school with my ex-wife unit, who pontificated, "If a person doesn't have a college degree, he should not be allowed to vote."
As Tuco said to the sadistic stockade guard in Good, Bad & Ugly
, "I like big fat men like you, because when they fall, they make a big noise"
... as will the arrogant writing expert.
