‘I Got Shot & I’m Getting Divorced’, Teacher Gives Students Bizarre Excuses To Postpone Exams


While 2020 has been a tough year for many of us, teachers globally have risen to the occasion to ensure students don’t miss out on their education. From innovatively using virtual reality to taking advantage of modern technology, professors are going out of their way to help kids with their studies.

Recently, a twitter user shared a rather detailed email he received from his professor about the postponement of their examination. Explaining why he has to postpone the test, the professor named Patrick Willson wrote that he was shot and was being treated in the ER. That’s not all. He then goes on to reveal he has COVID and is going through a messy divorce too. We certainly feel bad for the poor professor.

The professor distressingly ends his mail with “If I am alive, the exam will be moved to Monday of next week.” Well, it’s no secret that teachers globally are working tirelessly to adjust to the new normal and they deserve a break too.

As the tweet went viral, the professor updated people saying things were okay. He then wittingly warned his students, “Unlike my wife, I expect you not to cheat.” Well, now that’s savage!

Many people were shocked to hear about the professor’s current situation: 

A few people pointed out that maybe the professor was being sarcastic since a lot of students often use such excuses to get out of online classes: 

Well, despite everything else, the professor seems like a hilarious person. We wish him a speedy recovery. What do you think about this bizarre incident? Tell us!
