This is a question My Arch-nemesis

I lived in fear of a Darth Vader-esque school dinner lady who stood me perpetually at the naughty table for refusing to eat mushy peas. An ordeal made worse after I was caught spooning the accursed veg into her wellies. Who, we ask, has wrecked your life?

Thanks to Philly G for the suggestion

University Director of Studies, Head of Unit, Head of Course and Assigned Tutor... no escape...
So... if the relationship went wrong, I'd be fucked. And I was.

I was on my way to a 2:1 despite seriouly serious financial problems and a substance addiction (no, a proper one, prescription pain killers following the car accident that forced me out of work and into Uni to retrain)... In my final year I couldn't avoid her classes and thus had to spend over half my time in her lectures, with her marks contributing to 60% of my final year marks.

She accused me of plagiarism, twice, gave me less than 20% for every other assignment and marked my exams similarly badly. I got a Pass for my degree, because she

A) denied me access to hearings re the plagiarism things
B) denied me re-sits for my exams
C) denied me a right of appeal against my marks and plagiarism thingy

But... a year later I had gathered enough evidence to prove that she had been throwing marks at people she was taking favours from, not noticed that the same people had been passing work down to each other year on year AND had my own marks looked at and was awarded a 2:2 instead - not nearly as bad as it was. Who's the scientist now???

Fucking grade A bitch, she was not only sacked but as far as I'm aware she hasn't worked since - and the arsehole buttlickers who were buying 1sts have been re-graded too... one of them was working quite high up for a prestigious charity and was sacked and the enquiry that followed showed she was on the take herself...

If I were an animal, I'd be a Llama... the Dalai Llama :0)

there's an interesting phrase
that painkillers are a 'proper' substance addiction. Why is that? Because you didn't bring it on yourself whereas all the other substance abusers chose to be that way?

I think he means
...as opposed to being a "chocoholic" (noun: one addicted to chocohol).
