If you’ve been in a college classroom, then you know that some professors have the worst pet peeves. Recently, in a lecture hall, at the University of Texas at San Antonio, an instructor called the cops on one of her students. As it turns out, Anita Moss, the instructor, thought it was a sign of disrespect and uncivil to rest your feet on the back of chairs.
A video was captured, and posted to Twitter of the student being removed from the classroom by authorities. Witnesses say that hadn’t been the first time the female student had been asked to put her feet down. We guess the second time, was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

As for Moss, she’s been suspended from teaching anatomy and physiology classes for the semester, and is currently being investigated for discrimination and classroom management issues.
Taylor Eighmy, University of Texas at San Antonio president, said, “The bottom line: regardless of the final outcomes regarding yesterday’s incident, we have an obligation as an institution to take a hard look at our campus climate — especially for students of color — and enact systemic change to make UTSA a more inclusive campus.”
The student that Moss called the cops on was African-American.
