Quoth Havering View Post

The quote kinda came from my manager, who has heard a similar argument which actually was "The dog ate my laptop cable." (Yes, a student did actually use this excuse and yes, they did provide proof that the dog really did eat their laptop cable. We granted them an extension )

Why, oh why, do people think that they get infinite chances to change their minds with no repercussions? Are they really just that special?
A few of the students in the bridging program have a bit of an entitlement mentality at times, but I tend to put it down to a lack of understanding (not that it makes it any less frustrating). We get the same issue with placements in general really.
