Thank you sending in your 1-page paper 2 hours late. Thank you for e-mailing it to me, since it was late and I set up the LMS to not accept it after the deadline. Thank for telling me that you have poor time management skills. I always enjoy a good mea culpa, and therefore, I will write you a few comments to tell you how you would have done on the paper. This one time. However, no points for you!
Thank you for the explanation of how you didn't understand that papers you turn in, in college need to use a formal writing style. Thank you for the assertion that you will do better in the future and the suggestion that I could be more fair by not "judging the first paper so harshly." I'll take that under advisement. In the meantime, no points for you!
F. F. Flake,
Thank you for the charming personal essay about why your parents decided to homeschool you that you turned in, in place of the assignment that was due. I can't say I hated reading it - it was even a little funny. However, it was not a paper on the role of hamster fur in the Argentinian garment industry that I asked for. So, although it was ok for what it was, no points for you!
Also, sweet children, that first paper was worth less than 1 point out of the 100 in your final grade. Math. You should look into it before you press send.
