Went From An ‘A’ To A Pee

| Learning | July 14, 2017

(My teacher sends me a text message telling me I never turned in an assignment that was due that day. Unbeknownst to me, I am in the bathroom when she asks everyone to turn it in. I go to her classroom during my free period and turn it in.)

Me: “I’m still getting full credit for this, right?”

Teacher: “No, because this assignment is late.”

Me: “You never asked for it, though.”

Teacher: “Look, [My Name], I know you can’t control when you use the bathroom, but this has been a problem. Before you use the bathroom, I need you to ask me if any homework needs to be turned in.”

Me: “Okay, I’ll do that from now on.”

Teacher: “All right. I’m taking one point off for not paying attention.”

(The assignment was out of nine, effectively turning my A into a B. What do you want me to do, plant spy cameras in your room?!)
