Email Blitz from the Calculus Circus

The title is somewhat of a misnomer, as my students write to me at my work address, not at my BlitzMail address. A few of the missives that arrived today:
  1. Student writes to me over lunch about the possibility of not taking the exam in the early afternoon with the rest of the class. Student wishes to discuss the review sheet with me and take the exam at a later date.

  2. Student got into a car accident on the way to campus. Emails me from his cell phone while in the hospital. Won't make it to exam.

  3. Student who has been sick and running himself ragged has pushed himself past his limits and didn't do well on the exam. Wants a do-over.

  4. Another student wants a do-over.
