He was really cheesed off because he'd heard that another student in a different class was given an A+.
History doesn't record how successful he was in swaying the teacher's opinion.
But I bet he crashed and burned.
Why is it people (and yes I mean teachers) are so reluctant to give 10/10, A+, Excellence 8 grades?
I hate that!!
I was watching an episode of Escape To The Country recently - the home hunter gave a property an 8/10, saying that she never gave 10. Yep - she was a retired teacher.
To me, if it's a 10 point scale or a D- to A+ scale or a Not Achieved 0 to Excellence 8, then use the blimmin' whole scale!! Sorry fer the language but it really gets my dander up.
Here's my favourite perfect scores (great success):
- Arsenal F.C.'s 2003-2004 season (the Invincibles)
- The Beatles' Revolver
- Seinfeld Season 1 to Season 9
- Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig
- The Four Seasons by Vivaldi
- Bananas by Woody Allen
- William Wordsworth's Prelude
- Rory Gallagher's July 1, 1980 concert at the Auckland Town Hall
- William Goldman's screenplay for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
- John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band's album of the same name
I could go on.
Have a great Rocktober!
