A student called out his professor in an email for being bald and then asked him for an extension on his essay because he was too drunk to meet the initial deadline — his professor replied with hilarity.
Patrick Davidson, a student at an unnamed U.S. college, emailed his professor, Mr. Martin, one evening while severely intoxicated and knowing full well that he needed to attend class the next day.

While Davidson’s email worked out in the end, it should not be used as a template for future deadline extension requests. In fact, this type of email is has grounds for severe consequences at most universities.
That being said, universities and colleges should hire more professors like Mr. Martin who can see life outside of the classroom.
