I am not someone who can be bullied.

Little miss snot plagiarist emailed again, whining about "whyyy?  Why did you fail me for stealing someone else's work and claiming it as my own?  WHY???  I'm going to complain to your boss about how unfair you are for enforcing the university's plagiarism policy!!!"

Okay...first of all, I've already contacted my boss.  He is more likely to back me up than cater to a little snot-nosed twerp whining about raising two little ones by herself (and I wonder who made the choices that led to that?). 

Second, the attempt to browbeat me and turn this into my fault, somehow, just makes me more determined to fail her cheating ass!!!  Why in the world would anyone think it was the teacher's responsibility to fix the paper that she didn't even write in the first place?

I hope she doesn't think that this is going to get me to cave.  She's in for a painful wake-up call, if so.

  2. Probably. She's shifted to verbal abuse and more threats. I sent her a screen capture of the Bing search, including which link held the full paper she turned in.

    She should be proud. She just made my Friday Fuck Off topic of the week.

  3. Oh, well.....I was a ghost writer for other students in high school--the extra cash came in handy!

    1. That's a little different from taking it off the internet, then shamelessly screaming "I didn't do anything! I'm gonna get you fired!" when they get caught, and the consequences of their actions applied.

      And they were only cheating themselves, and you got more writing practice (and money).

      This little gal, doing what she did in as blatant a way as she did it, is not just cheating herself, but cheating her classmates, and cheating me out of time I could have spent helping her classmates or playing with my kids. She continues to cheat me out of time with all of the verbally abusive, poorly written emails she's sent me proclaiming that it's really my fault, not hers.

  4. I'm so done with the "I broke the rules but I'm going to complain to your boss about it" attitude. I have a colleague who's served on the grade-appeals committee and he says a big proportion of those get immediately shot down because they're over stuff like "I plagiarized a paper but I didn't KNOW it was wrong" and the conclusion is "You're a college student; you should have known."

    I also really REALLY really REALLY hate the whining. You're a college student; you're not a six year old. Put on your big-girl or big-boy panties and explain your problem in a calm voice.

    1. A calm tone to the emails would be nice. Preferably obeying the rules of punctuation, proper capitalization (either all caps or no caps does nothing for a person's case, other that demonstrate how dumb and overemotional they are), and paragraph breaks where they need to be.
