My college e-mail address was deactivated. Apparently, through divination or tarot reading or something, I was supposed to be able to predict this because it was on some part of the college website that I never even knew existed in my six years of schooling. No warning e-mail, no "Hey, here's what you need to know post-graduation" document in the mail, nothing. Just - bam! - and now my account is inaccessible. So, I'm forced to jump through a bunch of hoops to get a guest account in order to get back into the system - and I could be rejected anyway. I wouldn't worry about it if my whole damn life for the last six years hadn't been tied to that address, but fucking hell, seriously.
Clearly it would have been too hard to just give alumni accounts to the graduates.
