There are many, many things you should never do under the influence of alcohol. Drive. Get married. Call your ex.
McKenna Clark wants you to add this to the list: Email your professor.
The University of Wisconsin-Richland student was out partying recently when she remembered an assignment due the next day.
So she emailed her teacher.
Never miss a local story.
“Sitting in front of her laptop, she typed what she believed to be an okay essay, hit ‘send’ and went to bed,” writes The Huffington Post UK.
“The next day she woke up, reviewed her sent messages and died a little inside.”
Yep, she was drunk when she wrote it.
“PSA: don’t write papers hammered and then turn them in like me.” Clark wrote on Twitter where she posted a screengrab of the embarrassing email.
“Professor Grams, my name is McKenna, I had some Dr. Pepper’s I am doing good,” she wrote.
“Your assignment is way too hard. I can’t do it right now. I am better now, however, because the Dr. Peppers wore off.”
The tweet, posted last week, has been retweeted more than 37,000 times and liked more than 100,000 times.
“It’s safe to assume that someone from her town of Appleton, Wisconsin has found out by now,” wrote the online entertainment magazine Coed.
“If having an embarrassing moment go viral isn’t enough to make you be more considerate of your actions, nothing else will. We’re rooting for you, McKenna.”
Clark was assigned to write about whether it should be legal or illegal to kiss on a train.
“It should be legal to kiss on the train because it is romantic.
“It’s illegal to kiss on the train because it is a safety violation. If you are kissing while on the train you must realize that it could end up being dangerous. If the driver was kissing on the train, who would be driving the train. You are welcome.
No word on what her professor said.
