E-mail to GEW from Student Who Takes the Cake (SWTTC)

I submit to you, dear blog peeps, Part III of the saga, not as comedy, but tragedy:


dear mrs. [GEW],

hello its me [SWTTC], i know we had some discussion about my research paper about how it couldn't pass because of plagerism, mrs.[GEW] i have never ever plagarised in my life, never in any paper i've ever done before, i know that i forgot to quote somethings and rewrite them a little, but these mistakes seemed to have cost me the points it was worth, if i may ask....is there anything we can work out? i don't know cause the class ended already but i really did not want to fail and have to retake that class again, if you can write me back i would greatly appreciate it, i would like to turn in a better copy corrected if its alright with you but like i said, i don't know because the semester ended

GEW, I wish Santa didn't need to deliver a metric ton of glitter pens, but I put them on the list for you.

Dear SWTTC,
The [dean, honor council, whatever] will be happy to chat with you.

Happy expulsion!

Oh, I've had this before. How it makes the anger boil! I love "I've never plagiarized in my life..." Sure you haven't, moron. If students ever cracked a book to see what plagiarism actually is, they might have a freaking clue. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

There HAS to be a way to get this child to cease and desist. If it weren't in total violation of confidentiality, I'd be tempted to change my out-of-office automated e-mail reply to say,

SWTTC: No.
