I have a final at the last possible time on Monday. Grades are due the next day at noon. One of my colleagues teaches two sections of another course, and offered Make-Up Mike the option to take his final with the second section when Mike missed taking it with his own class. That "make up" final takes place during MY final (obviously, my colleague teaches his second section at the same time as I do, as my college is careful not to double book any class for the same exam block).
Make-Up Mike e-mailed me, telling me that he had to make use of his other professor's "make up" time, which was during my final exam, so he'd need to use my "make up" exam time. When was my make up exam, he asked?
I explained to Mike that I do not have a make-up exam period, and that technically, neither does my colleague. "He's allowed you to take the final during a different time period that is convenient for him, but it is not so convenient for you, since it's during another of your exams. You'll have to ask him whether you can retake his exam at a different time," I told Mike.
Mike explained that my colleague had made it clear that this was completely out of the question. Mike also "explained" that I was remiss in not scheduling a make up time for students, as my colleague so politely did from the outset. Mike is going to the Dean to complain about how unprofessional and inconsiderate I am, to not take steps that other professors take to help students succeed.
Mike is an asshole, and I am not happy with my colleague either. That's all.
