Volunteer Work

I taught for 3 hours this morning, and this was the second part of a favor asked of me by an instructor at a local community organization a few weeks ago.  The staff told me that instructor went on vacation today.  One of the students who takes this class with her husband did not come to class two weeks ago, and neither did her husband, but she insisted that I cover the part which she missed by saying that certain pages were not covered.  Wow, talk about rudeness.  And I wonder if the student was actually being rude, or how informal the class really is.  The other students however, agreed that those pages were already covered but I decided to do a quick review anyway.  I'm probably going to think twice about volunteer work now.
