Thoughts that run through my head as I grade my students’ final columns…
Seriously? Do you REALLY think I’m going to believe that you just “forgot” to attach it?
So you were “sick,” were you? Hungover from Mardi Gras, as YOU stated on Facebook, does not count as being “sick.”
Why are you not citing information? Don’t you know that’s plagiarism?
Pretending that your final assignment doesn’t exist will not make your zero will disappear.
What the heck? Did you take a dumb pill when you wrote this?
Wow. Someone’s bitter about his ex-girlfriend (as noted from the multiple, “She’ll always cheat on you” and “Girls are players” that he wrote).
Is this another made up story?
What, did this final paper surprise you? Yes, I suppose receiving three e-mails about it and voting about it in class, seeing it on the syllabus AND the fact that I gave you seven extra days to work on it would come as a surprise.
I need a diet coke.
