This question has been plaguing me!
See, I sent an email to the financial aid office asking if certain changes to my reward will cause me to become de-registered from courses (for not paying all my Spring charges on time) if I don’t do something about it immediately or in a certain way. I got an email back, and one thing they stated was:
You will not become “de-registered” from courses, however.
The fact that they deliberately put the word de-registered in quotation marks has been bothering me since this morning. Did this person imply that I used the wrong wording? Are they making fun of me? What really sacks me is that, if any of the above are true, could there be a small group of office staff pointing and laughing at the email, pondering over what the average college student’s grasp of the English language is like, nowadays?
