yes.  all signs point to the fact that he despises you.

as a matter of fact, it appears that he is actually LEAVING TOWN in order to avoid writing your rec, and has probably given his secretary instructions to forward your package to the nearest shredder and then feign ignorance of its arrival.  you DID send it fedex, didnt you?  you DIDNT?  ha ha!

he may even have entered into a faculty witness protection program where you will never actually see or hear from him again, but his computer has been programmed to occasionally send you strangely-worded vague reassuring updates, such as "i shall have it completed as soon as i trim my nose hair, of which i will forward a sample for approval."

if you EVER get ANYTHING out of this person, it will probably be an envelope stuffed with an article cut from oprah magazine on how to lose weight by eating  nothing but sunflower seed shells, or even worse, a random page from your thesis, which i hear is somewhat awful.

my recommendation would be to hire a professional mourner to follow your professor around, wailing; or perhaps the cheaper option of calling him 8 or 9 times an hour until finally, recoiling with pain at the sound of your voice, he scrawls a quick sentence or two on the back of a used tissue paper just to get you to go away.

learn to drink heavily now.  it will serve you well throughout law school, not to mention your future legal career.
