Hello there. I am Terry and I am a full-time undergraduate based in Singapore. I take photos, write a blog and design websites.

And no, I'm not a teddy bear.

I WILL FAIL YOU!!!!

Oh, looks like we have driven our egoistic, bigoted lecturer (let’s call him L then) up the wall. Here’s the email he sent out, in it’s entirely, to the inboxes of those unfortunate students like me who were forced to take up this core subject.

From: L** **** ****
Sent: Sat 10/31/2009 12:25 PM
To: “BS***-LEC-09S1″
Subject: Another WARNING from ** L**: BS***-LEC-09S1

If you have nothing better to do, PLEASE DO NOT email me with panicky messages like “Oh my god!!! Does that mean i do not have a mark for CA? cry …”

WARNING: If I get any of these STUPID emails again, I will REALLY REALLY FAIL whoever sends me these emails that DRIVE ME UP THE WALL!!!!!

I regretted sending the email about possible uploading problems if your file contains non-alphabetic characters like “-” as in “BS***-xxx” There is ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM with this filenaming convention.

FOR THE LAST TIME, if the system acknowledges that it has received your upload, then THAT IS IT!!!!! If I have not received your assignment file after the deadline (over now), I will SOON BE CONTACTING you. If you don’t hear from me, you are OK.

SO PLEASE DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT email me further with STUPID, STUPID, KIASI, KIASI EMAILS asking me to check your uploads.

WARNING WARNING WARNING – IF I EVER RECEIVE ANOTHER SUCH STUPID EMAIL FROM ANYONE FROM HEREON, I WILL NOT BE NICE ANYMORE AND WILL FAIL (READ CAREFULLY) I WILL FAIL YOU!!!!

This email made my day. I just feel very, very, very obliged to dedicate a post to his email. Wow, and all-caps sentence? Groundbreaking.

Moral of the story – if you have a cohort of almost 400 students, ask them to hand in their research paper in hardcopy. And don’t whine about the technicians, L. They’re innocent. You have trampled on their dignity like a mad bull on a beautiful lawn, and mama karma is now on her way back giving a good kick to your butt.
