Clue to the clueless #1
Hint: if your professor takes your paper, covers it in red ink, gives it back to you and asks you to re-write it, it is not an opportunity to tell your professor how busy you are, and how unfair the assignment was, and how you wished the professor had lead you by the hand through the assignment.
Take the paper, say “thank you” and come back by whatever deadline is offered with the corrections made.
Bonus: do not tell the professor the correction they have asked for is incorrect, stupid, or impossible. Just do it.
