So, yeah, my professor almost didn't take my assignment today. I was really sick on Friday. I left work early and didn't go to class. I e-mailed her and told her I was sick. That's what you're supposed to do. Apparently though, today when I turned in my assignment that was due Friday, I was informed I was supposed to have a doctors note for being sick. She almost didn't take the paper.
I'm sorry, but I find that to be a little ridiculous. I'm not going to go to the doctor to get a note if I just have a nasty cold. I knew I needed to sleep and get a lot of vitimin C for a few days. I'm not three years old needing a doctor to tell my my nose is running. I can take care of myself.
I talked to some friends about it, and I guess they don't even try to make up stuff anymore if they're sick. Apparently there are a lot of professors that require doctors notes now. What a waste. I understand the need to confirm us actually being sick, but she could have also accepted a note from my workplace, which sent me home early. They knew I was sick. Ugh...I'm just frustrated. I guess whining about it doesn't change anything though. I'll be quiet now.
