Default Re: Acock's Wrap Up: Wisconsin

Quote:
One time in college I was carrying around 18 hours. That might not seem like a lot to you guys, but to me it was the most hours I had ever taken, and three of those classes were three-hour long studio art classes. It was brutal. For about a two week-stretch, I began missing one of my 8am classes. Either I'd worked late the night before, or I needed to go down to the shop to fabricate a sculpture project...either way I just somehow missed it for two straight weeks. So much so that missing it became routine. After the second week of missing the course I resolved to drop it...and then PROMPTLY FORGOT ABOUT THE COURSE. I mean... I didn't even think of it again until about 3 weeks later when I saw the textbook and realized in horror that I had forgot about it. It was past the drop date, so I was screwed. I found the professor's office hours, explained the situation to him, apologized, and asked if there was ANYTHING I could do.

He thought for a moment and said, "I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to give you an F. Honestly, I'd really love to be able to give you a different grade, but the truth is F is the lowest grade I can possible give you. I'd give you a Z if I could, but F is as low as they'll go."
This is a recurring nightmare I have, and I will probably have it again tonight.

Thanks Acock.
