His professor sent him an e-mail the following day:
Dear Michael, Every year I attempt to boost my students’ final grades by giving themthisrelatively simple exam consisting of 100 True/False questions from only3chapters of material. For the past 20 years that I have taught Intro Communications101 at this institution I have never once seen someone score below a 65 on thisexam. Consequently, your score of a zero is the first in history and ultimatelybrought the entire class average down a whole 8 points.
There were two possible answer choices: A (True)and B (False). You chose C for all 100 questions in an obvious attempt to getlucky with a least a quarter of the answers. It’s as if you didn’t look at asingle question. Unfortunately, this brings your final grade in this class tofailing. See you next year!
May God have mercy on your soul.
Sincerely, Professor William Turner
P.S. If all else fails, go with B from nowon. B is the new C
As every aspect of our daily lives has become hyperconnected, some people on the cutting edge of tech are trying their best to push it back a few feet. Keeping their phone in their pocket. Turning off their home Wi-Fi at night or on weekends. And reading books on paper, rather than pixels.
