If a college professor has grammar skills that poor, I think he should find a new profession.
There is zero chance this is legit.

Pretty much how I feel when a co-worker comes in sick because they don't want to "waste" their sick days so they can use them as vacation.

Sweet brown baby Jesus. I'm stealing that.
