Desperate times call for desperate measures, and the most desperate time of the year for college students is finals week.
Twitter user @ColinChambers44 shared a hilarious screenshot of what he's been reduced to, just a few hours before his research paper was due and the "M" key mysteriously crapped out on his computer keyboard:
And yes, there is an M in May:
to all of you out there who got your masters degree in criminal investigation and are experienced detectives: congrats on noticing the M in May, microsoft word adds the date automatically— Colin C (@ColinChambers44) May 10, 2018
looks like the top 45,000 most sensitive people on earth came out of hibernation today to snap at me over the letter M— Colin C (@ColinChambers44) May 10, 2018
He's working on it, but it's hard to explain the problem:
Though some people have presented him with some workarounds:
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Use these untill you run out. I can send more.— #MightyQuails (@TechGuyGuy) May 10, 2018
Workarounds are important, because you will be driven to desperate measures, like begging for extra credit:
And yes, people do email everyone in class with their pleas all the time, so double check that reply button:
Just sent my begging for extra credit to everyone in my class not just my Prof on accident.— Actually Aaron (@notdrugged) May 2, 2018
Because your teachers are over it:
No matter how outlandish your excuses:
No matter how high you were:
Your only chance is luck. Catch them in the right mood with the right meme.
It's not about your mood:
And some teachers do respect the workaround:
Sometimes they'll even give you the cheatsheet:
My teacher asked who had seen infinity war, and when I told him not to spoil it, because I haven’t seen any of the marvel movies, he got up and wrote me a list movies I need to watch before I see IW— Trin Loves Dylan || 10 || 19 ✨ (@WarioSuxToes) May 7, 2018

Thanks, teach! But seriously, about that extra credit...
