Clue to the clueless #3
Hint: if you email your professor each and every week complaining that the one question you got wrong on the weekly quiz was a “trick question” you are going to eventually start making your professor suspicious. If you then send rather nasty emails trying to refute the explanations the professor gives you as to why the correct answer is correct, she is going to get increasingly grumpy. If the main reason the answer is correct is because it is quoted from the textbook you are supposed to be reading, and your complaint is that you couldn’t find the answer in the chapter, she might get downright irritated, and start checking up on your essays and other work.
And if that work is plagiarized, you might find yourself failing the class.
Oh, and don’t have Daddy try to call and threaten the professor with lawsuits. Your grumpy, irritated professor probably carefully documented everything, and is just going to have a really good belly laugh over it all with the Dean.
