I may have no hair and one boob -- BUT, you will not be able to use an aunt with breast cancer to get an extension on your papers.
I received this at 6:15 AM -- he sent it at about 1:00 AM...
Context -- they've had 8 readings they could write about -- today the last possible one is due. His is due in class at 7:45. Obviously, his work isn't done... duh.
What I'd like to say:
Did she have an emergency double mastectomy in the middle of the night? I think not -- mine took at least a week to schedule...
In fact, you really sicken me -- when they took my boob they didn't take my brain, nor did chemo reduce my critical thinking skills. Trying to use my breast cancer as a way to connect with me to get an extension is bullshit.
Further, I'm sure this IS a lie -- to some degree. If you are, right now, at your aunt's bedside -- GO AWAY... she needs to sleep, you moron. She doesn't want her nephew hanging around.
Finally, you can have an AUNT with breast cancer and do your work. There will be plenty of time to help a woman with stage 3-4 breast cancer. Next week go over and clean her house on your day off. Drive her to chemo. Go get her groceries. Do her laundry. Rake her yard and walk her dog. All of those things are compatible with writing your paper about feminist philosophy.
As a move, this was a really bone-headed one -- not cool, not effective.
