Student's email to TA after wisdom teeth removal goes viral
Getting your wisdom teeth removed is relatively common as medical procedures go, but one person's reaction to medication has turned her into an internet star.
Abby Jo Hamele, a student at the University of Nebraska, posted a screenshot of an email to Twitter, saying she sent it to the teacher's assistant for her philosophy class while "high" on her medication.
The letter, riddled with typos, is a plea to receive more time on a paper due Nov. 22:
I believe that i relmebmer you said we, as us students, would be able to send you our papers for classss for you to look at over before we turn them in to cColin if we got them to you by the 22nd of Novermber.
I unfortmately got my wisdom teeth sliced outr and have not not been reacting very well to the surgeryy nor the medicatioon i were given/ so I do not thimk that I will be able to habe my paper finisherd by Tuesday at all.
Is tehere any way I would be able to send you my paper at any later date??? I wnt to do very good on this paper you know becayse i like to do well in my classes.
"Thank you Kevin, my dude," the main body ends, followed by her signature - with a pronouncer for the last name - and a P.S. promising to always answer questions and buy markers.
The screenshot has received nearly 30,000 retweets and more than 70,000 likes, and Abby Jo is celebrating her 15 minutes of fame.
"WHEN JACKSON AVERY FROM GREY'S ANSTOMY RETWEETS YOUR TWEET AND YOU ACTUALLY CRY," she tweeted Friday, referring to actor Jesse Williams.
The good news? TA Kevin replied, saying the draft was actually due on Nov. 28.
He also seemed fully aware the email was the result of the medication.
"PS - I hope your spelling is better in your paper ;)" he wrote.
