Thank you Calvin’s Mom

This post is devoted to the author of The Transmogrifier Files. Thank you!
Without you, I’d have been grossly offended during my first classes yesterday and last night. I would have thought a question like this one —
Q. What is the best way to contact the professor?
E. All of the above
— was insulting my ability to read. I would have thought repeated, emphasized disclosure on how there are no make-ups on the weekly quizzes was insinuating that I was too stupid to understand it the first two times.
But thanks to the glory of the Transmogrifier Files, I realize that this crap isn’t aimed at me. I show up on time, don’t miss class, complete assignments before the deadline and never cheat, so 90% of the warning disclosure is aimed at other people.
Thank you, Calvin’s Mom. The window into your life as a professor has kept this student on an even keel.
