But then I found a gem, the best comment I've ever received or hope to receive. On the back of a form rating me "Very Poor" in every category, a student wrote:
She may or may not be a she-devil/vampire!I'm tickled by this for so many reasons. Had the student simply written, "She's a she-devil," my reaction would have been, "yeah, whatever, dude." But I love the may-or-may-not-be bit, the pretense that he's not sure whether I'm a she-devil--and indeed, isn't quite sure whether it's a she-devil or a vampire that I may or may not be. (Also, I'm not really up on my demonology, but those strike me as two very different characterizations of one's English professor: does this class involve blood-sucking, or just garden-variety torment? Please check one.) The exclamation mark makes it even funnier.
So thanks, anonymous student! I kinda love you. And I'd haunt you if I had the time.
