One of the teachers I work with has now signed off two separate emails with, “thanks for any help or advise you can give.”
I gave her the benefit of the doubt once…
Along the same lines… when I asked another teacher if she could email me her class roster in a spreadsheet rather than giving me a paper copy (seriously, what good is a paper copy anymore?) she replied, “you’re asking too much.”
First saw this poster hanging in the Writing Center at the University of Vermont library, my old haunts.
It’ll be fun, they said…

Well. That’s win.
