You mean, I was supposed to buy the textbook?
Yes. Reading it would have been the next step.
But since I didn't read the book, can't you let me take a make-up?
No. That would be grossly unfair to the
students who read the syllabus, bought and read the textbook, attended
class, and followed the instructions.
but, this is soooooooooooooo stupid. I mean this course isn't even all that important to me.
Then neither will the failing grade you've earned seem important.

eyes, a glare, a flip of the hair, a stomp of the foot, and/or a slam
of the office door)
**A side note: I really like it when the student tries to slam a
pneumatic door. Hey, I take my chucks where I can get them.
