Dear Transfer Student,
I appreciate your situation, where you are transferring to Private College here in the sticks after four years at Whereverthehellyouwere College. I feel your confusion when you emailed and said you wanted to switch from basketweaving to hamsterology, and yes, I am the head guru of hamsterology at Private College.
Thus, I was willing to meet you last week, during my summer break when I am not on contract, so you will have a great experience at Private College. Alas, you had an ill grandmother. Yes, I understand, we can reschedule to another time during the summer when I am not on contract. Monday, you say? Sure.
Oh, wait...you didn't bother to reply about Monday when I agreed. I'm guessing this didn't work out for you, and now you expect me to be available whenever DURING THE SUMMER WHEN I AM NOT ON CONTRACT?
Stick to basketweaving.
