Dear student,

Yes, you've got a valid complaint about the assignment spec, but complaining about it 2hrs before it's due is not gonna gain much sympathy from me.

Love,

Your instructor who has her own finals.

P.S. I gave the class an extension and sent out an email clarifying 'cause I'm way too nice and yet still teh evil.

P.P.S. It is not unreasonable to require you to code to a spec for a programming class.
