Ever had words completely desert you as you sat down to compose an important email to your professor? Yeah, me too. But a few Penn students have found a neat solution, guaranteed to work every time: using predictive text to write their emails for them. Here are three real emails that students sent to their professors:

1. Topic: Homework Extension

Dear Professor Johnson,

I just wanted to ask about the homework for the first time in a long time and I don't want to be a part of the team. I have been sick of hearing about it but I don't know if you have any questions; please feel free to contact me at any time. I was hoping for a positive response from your side of french fries.



2. Topic: Setting Up A Meeting

Dear Professor Choi,

When is the next time you are in the area and I am not sure if I can make it to the meeting tonight but I will be there at the same time is money. Let me know if you need anything else from me please let me know if you need anything else from me please let me know if you need anything else from me.



3. Topic: Grading

Dear Professor Mill,

What is on the midterm is only one of the best things in the past. What is the grading curve like to die after viewing this property is still available? Thanks in advance for your help and support you in whatever way you can get a good night's sleep and I will talk to you later I love you too baby girl.
