Or should I say, tales from the “university”? My professor apparently
misplaced lost my book review, which I handed in 17 days ago – one of the first to have handed in all the material that was due. What do I get in return? I get an “I” – for incomplete – on my transcript today. It means that I have not handed in one of the required papers. I call the professor at 5 pm – and luckily he is at his office – and he’s so calm; he tells me he was expecting my call. Expecting my call!!!!!?!! Expecting MY call?? Should I not have been the one to expect a call??? Especially that I had personally placed the review in his hands on February 3, and that I have been paying him a visit every week to ask him when the grades would be out??? He was expecting my call, he said. Oh how nice. How nice indeed. And given that tomorrow is the last day of late registration, I ought to be impressed. Give the guy some credit, at least he umm picked up the phone?? I feel so … lucky. Now for the other course, nothing surprising there, got an A (no A+ system here). I was expecting it. Not that I worked my ass off for the course, but I can say that I did a reasonable amount of research and – not to brag – did really well on the presentations.
Psst, fellow cryptites, I trust you will not pass on this link to the professor in question. 😉
