Well, THAT Was Tedious



My other accounts similarly needed attention, but not nearly as bad. 

I learned two other things this weekend. One is that the vacuum cleaner has a seperate on-off switch on the handle. So if it won't start when one pushes the big on-off switch on the main body, the correct course of action is NOT to take the vacuum apart to see whats wrong with the switch. 

Two of my upcoming courses have been cancelled by the University. I'm within 4 classes of graduation, so this is filling me with emotions that are not appropriate for a gentleman to express.

Fortunately I have in my employ, this imaginary young lady of low virtue, who is not so constrained. 


Not pictured; The expletives.

I'm not sure I'm supposed to do now. 

I'm frankly still in a bit of shock.

1 If I were you, I would call the university and find out what you can take for your degree. Sometimes they have freaky things like seminar classes or individual classes, for the benefit of folks like you who are close to graduation.

2 You may have to call around a lot, but your department people should either know what to do or who else to ask.

3 Uni prof (biology) here. The university is pretty much required (at least, mine would be) to provide alternate arrangements so you can finish your degree in a timely fashion. Simplest scenario: there's a course in your department (or another department) that can substitute for the cancelled classes. Most complex option: someone does an "arranged" class for you, I've done that: I have taught "summer research" sections for people who needed a particular class that could not be offered because of lack of demand (1-2 people at most every few years). I was happy to do it to get the students finished (AND I did get a publication out of one of the rounds of it...) but it is a bit of a paperwork nightmare for the department.
