staying positive

From an e-mail by a student who wasn't in class today and didn't turn in the essay that was due:

"I know professors hate to hear this, but my other classes are just 10 times more important."

Here's how I've chosen to file this in my brain: "Hey, I'm being treated like an actual professor and not a graduate student."

There's less heartburn if I think about it that way.
