No, *You're* Impertinent!

My friend the English professor (who asked to remain nameless, lest curious Googling students or college administrators discover her snarky side) received a most excellent email demand the other day.

It was from a student who got seriously ill and missed the final exam before summer break. My friend the English professor gave the student a take-home final, which the student took his sweet time completing. Fast forward a few weeks and this message was waiting in the English professor's inbox (and yes, I do keep repeating the phrase "my friend the ENGLISH PROFESSOR" for a reason):

Professor: It is impertinent that you grade my final right away.
