What This Guy Accidentally Sends To His Professor Has Internet In Tears, But Her Response Takes It To Next Level

It’s a time-honored tradition of students everywhere – pulling an all-nighter to complete that paper that has been hanging around your neck for weeks, just before time. These days work is usually submitted online, so all that needs to be done after your caffeine-fueled n

ightmare is a simple attachment, and off it goes to be graded. No hungry dogs around to eat it, no printer-based dramas to fall back on.

Things can still go hilariously wrong though, as student Alex Sparrow found out to his cost. Having completed his literary essay about diversity in society, and in a sleep-deprived, euphoric state, he somehow contrived to attach the wrong file when submitting. He shared his story on Twitter and it has since gone viral, being retweeted almost 100,000 times.

“For several days I couldn’t even scroll through Twitter without it freezing up on whatever was showing,” Adam told Bored Panda. “I had a video stuck on my phone for 5 minutes as I was getting hundreds of notifications every second.”

But why? What’s the big deal? You might ask. You will understand when you see the file he sent by accident! Scroll down to check it out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments below!

Here’s how people reacted:

Finally, the professor responded!

“Unfortunately the cat isn’t mine,” Adam told Bored Panda. “I wish it was though! My teacher wanted to know about the cat and if even she could have it but sadly, I’ve never known the cats true origin”

Do you know the origin of this cat? Let us know in the comments!

Students return to school after Parkland shooting with help from some therapy dogs

Two weeks have passed since a deadly mass shooting killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and the resilient students and faculty are beginning to come back to their classrooms.

The return comes after several tough days spent organizing to fight for increased gun control and mourning the teenagers, football coach, and athletic director who lost their lives during the tragedy.

In wake of the traumatic event, the school’s principal, Ty Thompson, thought some therapy dogs would help provide extra comfort upon return, and the photographs are pretty precious.

Thompson’s been very active on Twitter sharing updates and encouragement in the days following the shooting. 

He was sure to post photos of the first days back in February, inculding several of faculty members cuddling the therapy dogs, and one of students smiling with a dog in class. He explained that the dogs have been “a major source of healing.”

Nine of the dogs are from Lutheran Church Charities in Illinois and have reportedly been a big hit with the students. Some students showed their love for the dogs on social media, sharing photographs and thanks.

In fact, the pups were such a big hit that Thompson invited them back, increasing the number so more students could benefit from the animals.

The official Instagram account for Humane Broward’s Animal Assisted Therapy also shared several photos of students smiling with the animals, explaining the dogs “participated in classes all day, made lots of new friends and provided unconditional love and comfort.”
