Student Sends Hysterical Email To Teacher After Wisdom Teeth Surgery

"I will most likely not be normal again until at least Thanksgiving turkey," Abby Jo Hamele wrote in an email laden with error to her class's teaching assistant. "Thank you Kevin, my dude."

Wisdom teeth removal: It's a pain (literally), but what comes after isn't bad. In fact, it's often quite funny in retrospect. 

Abby Jo Hamele, 19, is a student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She recently underwent a procedure to get her wisdom teeth removed, which isn't anything extraordinary.

The email she sent the teaching assistant of her Philosophy 101 class while hopped up on hydrocodone, however, definitely was, BuzzFeed reports.

 The note reads,


I believe that i relmebmer you said we, as us students, would be able to send you our papers for classss for you to look at over before we turn them in to cColin if we got them to you by the 22nd of Novermber.

I unfortmately got my wisdom teeth sliced outr and have not not been reacting very well to the surgeryy nor the medicatioon i were given/ so I do not thimk that I will be able to habe my paper finisherd by Tuesday at all.

Is tehere any way I would be able to send you my paper at any later date??? I wnt to do very good on this paper you know becayse i like to do well in my classes.

please sir I workled very hard and thouught that I would be abel to finish it on timme but my doctor said I will most likelly not be normal again until at least Thanksginvg turkey. If you say no then that is okay but i would be sad and i would reallyyyy lik e it if you said yes. Thank you Kevin, my dude.

Abby Jo Hamele (pronounced hah-mil-lee) (if you were wondering)

love you bye

Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Twitter thought so, too. 

Hamele did, in fact, receive a reply from her TA, which was great in and of itself:

And in case you question the legitimacy of Hamele's bewilderment, this video (taken, presumably, by her sister) proves just how mixed up she was while on painkillers — literally mistaking the current family dog for one who'd passed away.  

"No, I remember that Sammy's dead," she sobs. Yikes.

Hamele, we hope you're feeling less loopy  — and that you get an A on that paper. For that email, you 100 percent deserve it.
