Listen to a conversation between two students.
Hey, Matt. You got your paper done for class today?
No, I just realized its sitting on my desk.
I wrote it last night, but I forgot to bring it with me.
Uh oh. So what're you gonna do?
Well, I could drive home and get it.
I live off campus, but if I hurry,
I'd probably get home and bring the paper back before class was over.
You know how strict she is about late submissions.
Yeah, but you'd miss part of the class.
I know ...
Maybe you could talk to the professor ...
explain what happened ... and ask her if you could send it later by e-mail.
I know. But I'd have to do it after class 'cause she always starts class right on time.
There wouldn't be time to talk to her until after class.
Well, why don’t you do that and hope she doesn’t consider the paper late?
