|Thankz for the Lulz.|
Our fine and upstanding institution of higher learning has a notification system in which students who are receiving poor grades get an automated "contact yer prof, STAT" warning. These went out last week.
One such sterling example of disengagement, who has attended less than 50% of class sessions, handed in zero written work, and failed the first exam, decided to respond to his warning. My shocked face, let me show you it.
It was the response itself that contained the lulz. "I've been meaning to meet with you about my grade. I know I am not doing well in your class can I meet with you tomorrow after class?"
Cats and kittens, the email was sent the Monday of our spring break week.
Yes, indeed, it is spring break and the little darling is so disengaged with the learning process that he didn't even know that this week is a well-earned week of debauchery and shenanigans for him AND for me.
And with that, I'll get on with my spring break, chuckling all the while. Cheers!
