Before my final exam in Symbolic Logic, I calculated my grade and the grade on the final that I would need to score for an A in the class. My previous exam score was a 47, and my overall grade was a 77.6. I did some calculations and learned that a 100 on the final would give me a 93.5 for the class, which would be rounded to a 94, the minimum for an A (90 to 93 = A-).
I had regularly been skipping the class or showing up late, so I knew that the professor wouldn't bump me to an A if I made anything less than a 100. I went to the library to study the day before the exam while telling myself that I absolutely had to go over every page and practice problem relating to the material on the final (proofs in predicate logic), but it only took me 45 or so minutes to glaze over the chapters and drift into boredom. I left the library and neglected to study for the rest of the night.
I woke up the next morning, went through my usual daily routine of bathing and eating and waiting for the bus. I kept my book in my arms and would occasionally take a glance at the pages hoping that the tidbits of information that I passed over would be both retained and useful. I made it to class on time, and the quirky Russian professor passed out the exams and left the room to do... whatever. In the end, all was for nothing. I failed the exam and the class...
Nah, just kidding. I waited outside of the professors office after giving him the test. There was one other person waiting and he went over all that she did wrong with her while I waited for another 10 minutes. He then turned to me, didn't say a word and gave me a funny look. I guess that he didn't expect me to actually make a perfect score. Regardless, I gave him a good review on the course evaluations.
WTFpwning NF professors is pretty funny, and right up there with pwning the NF's from CAPS (Counseling & Psychiatric Services) and the SJ's from OSFA (Office of Student Financial Aid).
