Today, my boyfriend once again cancelled a date because he has too much homework. His professor is my dad, who's assigning astronomical amounts of homework to keep us from seeing each other. FML

When you live long enough and see all the horrible things that are done to women, I'm surprised you have to ask why a father would be overprotective.
What's wrong with putting a guy through the ringer and see what he's made of?

While I agree it's probably not the best way of going about it, he is probably testing the boyfriend to see how much he can handle. He probably just wants to make sure this guy is good enough for his daughter. A lot of guys are deadbeat losers these days, got to be careful.

Not only that, but they most likely have other classes they have to worry about as well. Punishing the entire class to test one guy out, in addition to all of the other work they may be worrying about isn't fair at all. It does also depend on how long it's been going on, too, in my opinion. If it's only for about a week, and ends soon, that's a little more reasonable, I guess.

Uhh assuming professor means OP is in college. Professors/ teachers can do what they want in regards to teaching. They can cuss, assign as much homework they want, or take the day talking about things that aren't even related. College is place for adults who have the responsibility to make their own choices. At least that is how it is where I live and generally the courses go smoothly. That being said, I don't agree with what the dad is doing but it's neither fair or unfair, just life.

How much does it matter if it is fair to the other kids? With the old adage, that life is not fair just predictable, I'm glad that a teacher has a decent, good, reason to give so much work for once lol. Think of all the crazy teachers and classes where there was enormous amount of work for no real reason. Some extra work would have little impact in the course of pursuing an education but it could actually help some kids. Low negative impact with high potential for reward. And the workload amount is especially irrelevant if its an AP class. Who's going to argue over too much education at a school? Maybe the work is helping students. I'm more curious what you think about: if the extra homework is helping students, would it matter why he assigned the work?


Oh I'm sorry 60, I didn't know that college was a place for adults and that as a result of that they don't deserve to be treated with even a scrap of decency by their professors. Just because professors "can do what they want" doesn't make this behavior acceptable. Their personal problems don't belong in the classroom with their students.

Assuming that they're in college since she said professor, they're adults that can do what they want. I don't understand this whole super protective scary dad thing, they don't own their daughter and they can't control her choices or relationships, I think that the idea of an overprotective dad that treats his adult daughter like property is outdated and disturbing

Actually, he's more than likely doing the exact opposite by exhausting his students with an overload of work. The human brain isn't designed to function like that. Without proper rest, any useful information is more likely to just fly right by without sticking.

That's terrible. Just talk to your dad and have a sincere conversation about what's going on. If he liked him, he wouldn't be doing this. Get to the root of the problem. :)

If he's a very protective father, he wouldn't like him or any other boyfriend she would have at all. He could be one of those dads who wants nobody around his baby girl.
