agreed, #1. I'd check the school's policies on this kind of thing and talk to someone in charge (in person)

Actually it was a pretty big story in Toronto, I don't personally know the guy, also why the fuck was I downvoted? My comment was totally legitimate. OP should get accommodation for a surgery, and I was demonstrating my point with a stupid accommodation that someone at my school received.

but if op has surgery she obviously needs to have it. it's not like she said she had surgery and really didn't just to buy time for the test. the teacher should be understanding and tell op that as long as they have a doctors note that they can work on taking the test when op is able to come back to school but if not Op will get a failing grade.

Depending on the type of surgery, a funeral may be the same, an optional event. I'd like to think the professor would have some compassion if it were a life saving surgery and tend to think the OP is having something light done.

I'm not sure about the policies at your university, but here, if you can bring in medical certification to prove your claim, the university has no choice to accommodate you. I recommend you speak to the dean to see what you can do.

This is like the equivalent of the chorus of "divorce him/her!!!!" comments on FMLs about husbands or wives. It's a little harsh, don't you think? The professor doesn't deserve to lose his job. He deserves a lesson in common courtesy toward his students, but getting him fired is a bit much.

that's like pouring salt into the wound... telling you good luck. i'd complain to the school. you are, after all, paying for that class
