Student Question of the Year

When passing out the midterm exam in my 400-level, Persuasion class (in the major!), a student looks up and asks, "Is this a test??"

I reply, "It's the midterm exam" and calmly proceed to pass out the rest of the copies to the class.

I do not know how I kept from either cussing him out, smacking him upside his fool head, or laughing so hard I wet my pants. All of the above entered my mind.

(And, yes, I know what you are wondering. He did fail the exam.)

Shame though-because it reminds me of how I goofed around in College....and as bad as I was then....I KNEW THE DATES ON THE TESTS!

There is always at least one major slacker in every group, isn't there! Maybe now he'll pay more attention.

Wow, that is crazy! I'm not surprised he failed.

So, we're STILL WAITING for the state to approve our application! It's been 5 weeks now since they received the paperwork. Still no clue on when they'll be done.

Im starting to wonder if the guy from my pysch class 11 yrs ago made his way to your school. He had many famous one liners but the one that comes to mind, is when he said to the professor and i quote "I didnt read the material but Id like to comment anyway" Seriously she looked like a pipestack ready to blow, not sure how that professor kept her cool.
