Self-Certified Stupidity

| UK | Learning | November 3, 2014

(My friend organized an event and was asking her university for credits.)

Friend: “Dear [University], I organized, planned, secured funding for, and hosted a major international conference and I would like to received personal development credits.”

University: “To get ‘personal development credits’ you need a certificate of participation.”

Friend: “But I organized the entire thing! It would be a certificate from me to me.”

University: “No certificate, no credit.”

(So my friend made herself her own certificate, from herself, signed by herself, verifying that she attended her own event. The university was satisfied.)
