I've had students come to my office and say things like "I'm willing to do anything
to get an A." (Strong emphasis on "anything" accompanied by a demeanor that's hard to misinterpret.) I always pretend that I didn't get the message, and I suggest more effective ways of studying for the next exam!

It was just about the way things have been going down lately, you know? Stuff like that.

That's tough to deal with. I always gives exams and papers back at the end of the class because if I give them back at the beginning, I sometimes have to watch students crying. Sometimes they are male students too. Of course there's nothing you can do about students crying during the exam itself.

That is actually a detail I left out! One of my students records my lectures, but his recording device didn't work that day. He actually came up to me right after class and wanted me to re-explain the whole lecture to him right then and there! I told him that that wasn't feasible. So then he sent the request by e-mail.
