Continuing drama!

So, I was hoping that I wouldn't have more to blog about this Professor of mine, but alas, I do. I gave her that copy of Andy's letter and she said that it was great.
Finally, I thought. At last she is happy. So...I decided to venture farther and said that I was wondering about coming in on Thursday to take the test that I am missing. She said that she would have to check the sylabis to see what her rules were.

At this point I am wondering why she can't remember her own rules, but I let it go and sit down. After class I go back up to her and she checks on her rules and proceeds to tell me that I am going to have to take the test after I return from SC!!! Here is exactly what she says in the sylabis:

"Any student who misses an exam because of an unavoidable circumstance will be allowed to make up that exam, provided the student supplies writtten evidence of the unavoidable nature of the incident that caused him or her to miss the exam."

Can you believe that? This woman is insaine! She is a really good teacher, as long as you don't have to miss any test in her class or have to go see your brother whom you haven't seen in 3 months!!

I am so sorry that it has been so long since I posted last! I have not been on the computer for at least a week! I have been trying to get all my school work done so that we can leave o Saturday to go see Andy. I think that I have it mostly under control, but with classes like accounting and economics, I have a lot of work to do.

I have one professor, for accounting, who is a really great professor and she makes the class fun and the information easy to understand, but she has been a thorn in my side since the first day of class! I stayed after on the first day to tell her that I would be leaving on the 22nd to go see my brother graduate from boot camp, so I would be missing a week or so of class. She proceeded to tell me that it was fine, but she would need proof from me that we really are going to see him, that he really is in the army, and that he really does graduate on the 28th! I thought that she was joking! I thought, "Women! This is college, nnot middle school!" So....I brought in a bunch of stuff to show her that he really is in the army: a letter from him on the army stationary, a booklet that we got when he first enlisted, and a postcard that he sent to us with info on buying a dvd of boot camp and graduation.

I thought that she would be happy with this, but she wasn't. She told me that this was all wonderful stuff, but that she didn't want to read my personal mail so if I could kindly make a copy of the part where it says that we are going to see him with a date that we will be there, that would be great. So I made a copy of one of Andy's letters that says that graduation is officially on September 28. I sure hope that she is happy with that! None of my other professors made such a big stink over it!

So, that is what has been going on in my life lately!
