Life in the Pissant Swamp: I Lost The Textbook

So I got an email recently from one of my students informing me that he or she had lost his textbook for the class in the library if memory serves. Then I get a second email a while later asking me what he or she should do about the assignment that is due soon. Since this assignment requires students to read the textbook I told him or her to do something I would have thought would have been obvious: buy another copy of the text. Apparently, in a college that looks increasingly like high school these days the obvious is no longer the obvious. Welcome to the brave new world of Alice in Wonderland. What's a teacher to do?
