I've been Muged !

  1. Oct 26, 2006 #1
    Today in the mail came a mug from U of Michigan.
    On the mug says...Graduate Summer Session in Epidemiology. And a short note with it says ..a certificate will be sent on request. So if I don't send for it, years down the road, if anyone asks me about continued schooling..I just show them the mug!
    Do other schools do this?

    jeez, yea a steel mug would of killed me! But honestly, the last time I took a summer course, they had a little party and handed you the cert. They could send me a mug, but not a 8x10 peice of paper?

    NOOOOO!!!!!

    I just hit you out of relief that you hadn't been actually harmed. :uhh:

    It is pretty funny that they sent a mug and no certificate. They couldn't have packed them together?

    Sounds like they're in a hurry to get rid of them.

    :rofl: That's the oddest thing I've ever heard. They'll go through all the trouble and expense of mailing a mug, but not a certificate that could have been tucked inside a normal envelope? Maybe they tried selling the mugs to last year's class and realized they just have to give them away to clear out the closet space they're taking up. :rofl:

    Hmm Maybe some high pressure mug saleman got to them.:smile:

    does it say "made in china" on the bottom of the mug?

    When you title your thread, "I've been muged!", what do you expect us to think?!

    All I could think was, "I never even huged her!" And that just really buged me. I thought, "I would have luged a sled down an ice coated chute to have seen her."

    Then my dog tuged on my ear and I snapped out of it.

    You've gone dyslexic again. That should read "Okay, you're on the list of girls who are good on their backs."

    got any extra mug ????:eek:

    I don't get it. Did you actually take this course, or is it some kind of ad for the course? Like, if you send in for the certificate do you get enrollment papers, or did you actually already complete the course?

    Yep, took it over the summer, it was a fantastic session. I became interested after someone I know contracted, variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD).

    God, that's tragic.

    Anyway, to be sent a mug with the notice that your certificate will only be sent upon request is just plain weird.

    :rofl: Fortunately I was only there for a post-doc and managed to escape with my sanity, but only after I entered a recovery program in Ohio. :rofl:
