...and the late policy only applies to EVERY OTHER PERSON in class, just not them. All they have to do is let me know BEFORE the due date if they'll need more time. A day late, telling me your kid has been sick is not helpful. Also, an email or phone call to me takes literally a minute of time. Don't bullshit me that you couldn't find the time for it. If you can find the time to go to the bathroom or make a snack, you can email your professor.
Oh, you never read the required-reading announcement where the Late Policy is located? FUCK YOU then. Quit being lazy, making excuses and just do the goddamn work. It will take you less time to actually do the assignment than it does emailing me and whining/crying.
That is all. Thanks, GT, for letting me vent.
