Student: Why did you give me an F in the course?
Me: You didn't do much work. This is what you earned.
Student: What do you mean I didn't do the work? I did!
Me: We had 12 tests, 32 writing assignments, 1 formal report, and a presentation. You took three tests and did five writing assignments. Doesn't it make sense that this grade should be an F?
Student: Well, a body shouldn't have to do all the work to get a C.
Me... banging my head on the desk. I should have been a bus driver....
