the girl I was having so many problems with dropped my class!!!
She missed 6 classes and refused to turn anything in, even after I gave her an extension to turn in her papers. She had told me her mother had recently passed, so I told her she could have a couple extra days to turn things in. She never turned them in, and then she missed a conference with me. I emailed her and told her to drop my class because there was no way she'd pass with so many absences and with not turning anything in to me. She emailed me back and said she missed her conference because someone else had died (she said this was the 5th person in her family since September to pass), and she'd just give me her papers on Thurs the 25. She also claimed she couldn't drop my class because it would put her below full-time status. I emailed her again with a novel, telling her that these certain 8 reasons were why she should still drop my class. She didn't bother to come to class on Thursday, and when I checked my class list today, she's dropped! One less headache to deal with!
Right. Shower, here I come.
PS: Mom, I love you dearly, but when I say that if you call me, please don't call early. Yes, Mom, 8:30 AM is early. I was trying to sleep in, and you woke me up. Please to be calling no earlier than 10 AM.
