FOR THOSE who have actually gone through it, giving birth is an exhausting process.
Well, apparently, that was not a valid excuse to a professor after he allegedly threatened to flunk his student if she didn’t hand in an assignment.

Taking to social media, lifestyle blogger Olivia May Bell shared a video where she was in a hospital bed actually working on her homework.
The Tennessee mom had a baby monitor wrapped around her belly and her husband catering to her every whim as she awaited her baby’s arrival.
But that moment was quickly soured when she told her professor she wouldn’t be able to hand in an assignment because she was in the hospital.
Allegedly, he told her that giving birth was not an excuse and if she didn’t hand in the project he would flunk her.
She wrote in her video: “That one time I was getting my master’s degree while pregnant and my professor threatened to make me repeat if I didn’t do my assignment WHILE I was in labor.”
At that point, she had two weeks left of classes.

Like the true hero that she is, Olivia completed her assignment while in. the hospital and handed it in.
She claimed: “Hey, but I made an A- he also deducted five points for grammar and spelling.
“Like sir, I AM GIVING BIRTH.”
Previously, a woman lashed out at her boss who demanded she show up for her shift at work while her sister was dying in the hospital.
Restaurant worker Hillary Zinks, from New Mexico, became incensed at her supervisor over the “inhumane” text message she received.
Zinks received a call saying her sister was “in a coma, brain dead, could die at any moment in the hospital” while she was working at her other job as a makeup and effects artist on a film set – where her boss was much more understanding.
“She was like ‘please go home, be with your family because there’s no job in this world that’s worth missing life over’.” Zinks said on her TikTok page.
Zinks then set off on a 10-hour journey to Las Vegas to by her sister’s bedside and texted her supervisor at the restaurant en route, saying she was unable to turn up for work.
Her text message read: “I had to drive to Nevada because my sister is dying in the hospital there. I’ll let you know when I get back and when I can come back to work. I am so sorry to leave you hanging this weekend.”
But she became appalled by the response her boss sent, who allegedly wrote: “I do understand and I am sorry for what you are experiencing. I’m curious why you are letting me know two hours prior to your shift?”
In her TikTok video, Zinks said she could not predict the future and that “death does not have a timeline”.
She claimed she sent a polite reply, adding she was on a long road journey and was sorry she had not said anything sooner.
Then the supervisor responded: “As I said, I have great compassion and sorrow for what you are experiencing.
“Though, it is my job to create a positive work environment for all staff. We have 50 [diners] today and only two scheduled staff members are expected for the shift.
“We will make it work, we always do. It just makes it hard on the crew that do show up.”
Zinks became infuriated by that response and messaged back: “I don’t give a damn about the 50 [diners] or how hard the other people will have to work today.
“If you’re so concerned, then put on a server’s outfit instead of telling me that other people will have it hard today. Jesus Christ, read the room.”
Zinks said that she felt her boss either had no sympathy for her or just thought she was lying.
After arriving at the hospital she wrote again to inform her boss she was quitting her job.
“Call me crazy but after your comments this morning, I just got this crazy weird vibe from my comatose sister that you should eat s**t for what you said and that I should quit,” she wrote in the text to her supervisor.
“Sending love from Vegas.”
Zinks added she did receive later an apology from a senior manager who also said the supervisor was no longer working at the restaurant.
She still managed to hand in the test[/caption]
