Getting A B(S) Grade

| Learning | October 17, 2014

(I am an engineering student giving a presentation with some disappointing partners. The professor we are presenting to is an expert in the field and so likes to ask complex problems to trip people up.)

Partner: “So… uh … yeah. That’s my report.”

Professor: “Well what about [doctorate level equation]?”

Partner: “Uh… uh… um…”

(At this point I see my partner floundering and attempt to answer as best I could, making it up as I go.)

Professor: “You have run a business before, haven’t you?”

Me: “Yes, sir. How did you know?”

Professor: “Because that was all absolute bulls*** but it was by far the most professional sounding bulls*** I ever heard. I’ll give you the ‘A’ for that.”
