Students enrolled for classes off-campus or weekends

Dear Student: ...

These are the first two lines of a letter we've recently mass-mailed to students who - you guessed it - have registered for classes off-campus or on weekends. (In one of the five various departments I now work for on campus... insane).

They seem like pretty straight-forward lines. But I suppose most of our students aren't straight-forward people.

We've gotten so many calls like this:

student: “Hi, I got this letter that says I registered for an off-campus class, but I didn't.”

us: “Are you taking any classes on the weekends?”

student: “Yes.”

us: “That letter is intended for both off-campus and weekend classes.”

“Morons, your bus is leaving.”

Customer service. Gotta love it.

Funny. This was mailed to you or you're in charge of mailing it out?

both, actually. I work in the department that sent these out, and helped stuff many *many* of them. I also received a couple since I had registered for a weekend class. Irony.
