Radio silence

Student: Um, yeah, professor… I’m asking for an extension on the exam. I don’t know if you know this or not, but your lectures haven’t been livestreaming for, like, the last two weeks. I haven’t been able to understand the material on my own, and I need some more time.

Me: The lectures haven’t been livestreamed because we no longer have students in active quarantine. I announced this two weeks ago in class and on the livestream last Monday. You didn’t see that?

Student: No.

Me: You didn’t read the email I sent out about it either?

Student: No.

Me: Or read the statement I posted on D2L?

Student: No.

Me: So the class video feed disappears… for two weeks… utterly unexpected to you… and it never occurred to you ask why?

Student: No.

Me: …

Student: So can I have the exam extension?

Me: No.
