thanks for the heart attack!

Here's a thought:

Before notifying a student that s/he does not have enough credits to fulfill X minor, and will not graduate at the end of the semester unless said student drops said minor, it is probably a good idea to double check that the student, in fact, does not have the credits to fulfill the minor. If you prefer to skip this step, and the student is forced to come to you personally to point out that yes, s/he does in fact have more than enough credits to fulfill said minor, the appropriate response runs something along the lines of "Oh my God, I'm sorry, I am clearly too stupid to count to 6 and I apologize for the worry that must have caused you" and is nowhere near "Oh, I didn't think you would want me to count those classes."

Because I would much rather drop a minor I've put 40+ credit hours towards than count my directed study in Peruvian literature towards it, you twit. How did you get this job, and why are you allowed to have control over my future?
