An email to my advanced students today. I don't tolerate any of this BS.
To the person who picked up the ipod touch in the classroom on Monday:
1)If you picked it up by accident please return it to my office.
2)If you stole it:
a)You can return it to my office tomorrow, my door will be open most of the day. No questions asked.
b)Stealing from a fellow student makes you a sorry excuse for a human being.
c)If you do not return it and I find out who did it you will be failed out of my class and I will recommend suspension to the department.
d)I have no tolerance for stealing, want to test me? Every advanced student now has an F until it is returned. Mid terms are coming up soon, don't want an F? Find out who stole it.
