|There is no "Emergency|
Thirsty" graphic, mostly
because there's no such thing
as an "Emergency Thirsty."

When Quinn was there, Quinn sat in the front row and murmured questions and lengthy comments to me, even when I would say things like, "Could you please speak up? This isn't a private conversation. Please let everyone hear what you're saying."
Quinn failed to submit three assignments, and did steadily worse on exams over the semester.
Quinn chose not to write the optional essay on the final exam.
Quinn is 0.1 percentage point away from a C.
Quinn wants to major in my program.
I am the only instructor for this class.
Q: Do I give Quinn the boost that Quinn so sorely does not deserve, just to avoid a boomerang in my class next fall? Or do I give Quinn the boot in the hope of providing a wake-up call and realistic discouragement from pursuing my field?
