Story time!

As I said in my last entry, I have pulled a "whale as an answer" thing in college once. Not exactly a whale though, just smart ass comments.

Because my major has nothing to do with math really, I was eligible to take Freshmen Mathematics to fill my math requirement; a mostly easy math class. I had an awesome professor who would teach the class in a fun way. He wasn't supposed to teach that class but the lady who was supposed to teach it abandoned the college at the last minute (became a running joke but that's besides the point). Anyway, he always had a good sense of humor, always made some jokes, and even brought in an ice tea bottle filled with Jack, which he always mentioned. "Most important drink of the day!"

I had gotten all As on the exams, even with some excessive absences (I already knew most of the content)... Though because of my absences (some were actually sick, some were cause I was a lazy slob) I missed the entire last chapter, and of course it was the one chapter I didn't understand. It's the one time I wished a final exam actually was cumulative, since I probably would have a shot on this...

As I looked through the exam, I started freaking out. Thought I was going to fail the course, but then I started counting up my grades. As I added and averaged it out, I figured out that even a 0 on this test would leave me with an A-. But I couldn't just hand in a blank test. So I got creative!

One question was a geometry thing. Basically had to find the value of x type question. So I said, "X's value is lower than Y's because X dropped out of high school and leeched off his parents till he was 30. Y's value was only higher because she became a hooker, where X spent most of the money his parents gave him." After writing that, I decided I should preface this for the prof, and wrote on the first page of the exam booklet:

Hello Professor M! Because of being out, I was not able to study for this test! Instead, have some humorous answers and this smiley face! :)

I had fun writing the most creative answers I could think of, and even pulled the famous "find x on a diagram," where I circled x and had an arrow pointing at it saying, "It's right here!" Then I actually found a question I could answer right so said, "Hey professor! No creative answer here because I think I actually KNOW this question!" And then solved it.

At the end, I wrote a small story about how fun the math class was, and that i didn't expect a good grade, just a funny time. When I got my final grades in, I had an even better laugh. A+ in the class, A on final exam. That awesome prof gave me an A for the funny comments! :D

  5. Haha, that's almost hard to believe that he would actually give you an A on the exam. That's pretty awesome.

    I hope I'm never in that situation. XD

    Followed!

  6. Personally I wouldn't even have bothered using the first comment and let them be surprised. But that is just me. Good work though.

  10. At least your professor was pretty chill. He probably figured out you'd ace the class regardless and gave you an A for the laughs.
