4. “I’m going to have someone else explain why I can’t complete the assignment.”
Writing centers are great. Every college should have one. We love when students get help improving their work. But, if you rock up to the writing center the same day the assignment is due and perhaps then explain to the person staffing the writing center that you can’t possibly complete the changes to the assignment that they suggested in the time available to you, maybe without explaining that the paper is due later that evening, and then manipulate that person into emailing your prof to tell them how hard you’ve been working…you might be the child of over-attentive guilty divorced parents and could you please get some fucking counseling.
