Mystery Excuses

So far this semester I've had two students who have sent me cryptic emails about why they can't do things that they are supposed to be doing but have not revealed why. One of them came to my office and explained the situation in person. It was a complicated medical situation with other things going on, too -- yes, definitely too complicated to explain in an email. The other student emailed me last week about being unable to take the exam on Wednesday and promised documentation (without giving the reason). Then the student reiterated this to me in person in class on Monday. The student will be here in under an hour with a note that will explain everything.
