That Student...

Remember that student who complained about his grade with several profanities. He wrote to 'apologize.'

I use quotes because (a) he was brought in for discipline and was thus probably advised or instructed to apologize; and (b) he also informed me that he would be formally protesting his grade and the way I "blew him off" and treated him unfairly.

Does it really count as an apology when accompanied by the rest of the note? Ugh, some people.

Exactly. My department chair, after reading the apology, said the same thing -- it was hardly sincere. I was more uptight about having my grade challenged when I posted the initial topic. Now, I'm just annoyed because the problem won't go away, and I think it's ridiculous that a student thinks he can sit in my class and speak maybe once all semester and get a good participation grade.
