That is fucking awesome.  Sure the professor is a bit of a dick but he also happens to be 100% correct in everything he said and the student was a bigger dick in the first place by whining about something like this.  I was expecting much more pomposity from the set-up, but this e-mail is more funny and true than arrogant.  Good for him, I hope the punk learned a life lesson.

I agree, the prof makes some good points.  A Little smart ass? Sure, but maybe xxxx needs that so it'll get through to him/her.  A Masters' level student thinks it's okay to just come and go from classes without contacting the professor before hand? I think he/she DOES need to get their shit together.

Professors have a term for students like this: snowflake. (Derived from 'special snowflake'.)

There are incredible pressures in academia toward student retention, and students know it. With the onset of for-profit universities like University of Phoenix openly encouraging the students to have a consumerist mentality, this kind of whiny, entitled student behavior is the norm, and smackdown responses like this one quite the exception.
