As if life wasn’t hard enough for Chinese students this week, now they have to worry about being on time to class too.
Because a rather strict professor at the University of Electronic Science and Technology in Chengdu has devised a novel new punishment for students arriving late to his lectures. Tardy students are being forced to write out 1,000 emojis by hand.
Pictures have gone viral on the Chinese internet, showing students copying out row after row of symbols onto pieces of paper that portray a confusing range of emotions. Some netizens have laughed at the students’ misfortune. Others simply call the punishment cruel, ridiculous and pointless.
However, it could always be worse! He could make them write “biáng” a thousand times.
Almost makes you want to team up with your classmates and bash the teacher over the head with a wooden stool, huh?
