Over the last year or so, I've been receiving a kind of e-mail that I don't recall ever receiving before. On exam day students will send me an e-mail saying "Hey I won't be in class today because I am not back in town yet when can I makeup the exam?" They don't explain why they're not in town, such as falmly emergency or something. They're just like "hey man I ain't in the veceneldee of the exam today can't take it."
I try to reconstruct what's going on in their mentes, but I don't come up with anything that makes sense.
