"And kinda rushed as DH had only an hour between teaching a class and meeting advisees most of the afternoon to help them get registered for next semester. The freshmen take especially long as they are unfamiliar with requirements for CS majors. And then DH stayed in his office late to finish grading (normally he would've worked through lunch--he seldom takes it.)." - alstromeria

LOL! I kind of recognize all those excuses since my wife also teaches at a college. You wouldn't believe all the stories she tells me about the numb-nuts things students do and try and get away with. Like trying to substitute required classes for much easier classes, not showing up for appointments and then giving lame excuses, or sitting there painting their nails during academic meetings, etc.
