Clue for the clueless #4
Hint: the bookstore holds all necessary information for ordering your textbook. This includes ISBN numbers if you need them to order from somewhere other than the bookstore.
Not all professors have choice of textbooks, or their ISBN numbers.
Sending professors nasty emails after they inform you that a. they don’t have the ISBN number to give you and b. that information can be found in the bookstore, is simply rude. You are displaying your inability to competently complete research. Bad sign.
Sending said nasty emails after the semester has begun, when you should already have your textbook, is even ruder. Worse sign.
Sending nasty emails when you have already dropped the class because your professor told you to go to the bookstore to look up information you should have already have had, is just annoying.
