Monday After Break Question

I think I'll see if I can start something here.

How many e-mails did you get from students the day after break ends saying they could not make it to class due to transportation issues?

My answer is below the fold. Put your answer in the comments, or blog your favorite.

Two.

One car broke down, and the other was stuck in the Philadelphia airport.

Consider instead this question:

How many faculty could not make it to class due to transportation issues?

That would be me. (My used car's antitheft system decided to reactivate itself, and I had never used it before, so I had no clue what was happening. I hate cars.)

I like that one was in a car accident yesterday, called two others to make sure that someone told me she'd be late, and still showed up to turn some stuff in before going home to collapse. Not the sort of perseverance I expect dealing with students at the elite R1 school where I went ABD.
