Here's a good one. My Existential Literature professor (also my advisor and the chair of the English dept.) recently told me that 3 students in our class did not bother to turn in the first two papers (we have to write 4, paper 3 was due 4/19 by midnight), although they still come to class everyday. So, 0s on the first two papers, and the four papers are an extremely huge chunk of our grade.
I mean, really? This is one of the most upper level English courses, nearly all of us are seniors in there, and all are English majors. Why in the world would an ENGLISH major not turn in their papers? That has been the entirety of my classwork this semester, papers. I've already written 10 this semester, and have to write 4 more in the next week.
