Except, she had been given PLENTY of time to hand in those assignments!!! They were due up to a month ago, and Illiterate Iris just handed in a blank document each time. Each time, she claimed in seemingly tearful, impossibility illiterate e-mails that she had no idea how this could have happened, and could the prof try another computer or something? Because II Iris could read the documents on HER computer.
The professor on the case, kindly Professor Kate, decided to give this doofus one last chance the night before grades were due, and sent Iris an e-mail saying no, she had tried on every possible computer and even on her Ipod, and taken the documents to the lab and had the "experts" there try to open them as well, and they could all see nothing there but a blank document. But if Iris would send her the assignments before 10am the next day (grades were due that day at noon), she would be so Kindly as to grade and accept them. Auuugh. Why did she do that? Because our incredibly stooopid Academic Dean now seems to see it as if Kindly Professor Kate gave Iris ONE day to do all three assignments. Which is what Iris is now claiming, and producing the e-mails to "prove" it.
So now I am going to try to put together ALL the e-mails, the ones which include those which prove Iris is a lying idiot, in a way that is clear enough and easy enough to understand even for an Academic Dean. Kindly Professor Kate forwarded the e-mail chain to both me and the Dean, but the Dean needs me to make the whole situation more clear, as it seems to him that the student needs another chance. In the meantime, Kindly Professor Kate has, finally, received the documents, each one impossibly illiterate. But she does not want to grade them now. And who could blame her?
I am in for hours of work if I want to make this right. Augh!!!!
