On over-using phrases.

I have this one professor who says “if you will” at the end of every sentence. An example I jotted down in class tonight: “There is a band of clouds, if you will, around the equator. These clouds create albedo, if you will.” You know what, Professor? You really need to stop wondering if we will. Because honestly, we students WILL pretty much accept and regurgitate anything you tell us. We want A’s. So to answer your question once and for all: Yes. I will. Please stop asking.
