This is strangely wholesome.
@The Flame War, Let’s just hope no cops were watching.
Hi your dad, I'm SWAT the fireman.
@SWAT the fireman, are you a father as well
@SWAT the fireman, *swats*
@BerserkerNinja9, a father of 2, soon to be 3!
@SWAT the fireman, well congrats on the third I guess
I was assigned a 25 page essay once and near the due date my mom had a stroke so I didn’t quite finish, and I didn’t want to ask for an extension (because I wanted to focus on helping my mom) so I just turned it in since I already had 23 pages. The teachers comments were that it wasn’t even an essay and that I shouldn’t have bothered turning it in... I got an F. I had covered all the important aspects of the subject matter and the teacher didn’t dissect anything else except the length... but just because it was 2 pages short I failed... God I hated college.
@Earth Chan, sorry about your mother but if you’re told to do a job and only do some of it, should you get paid the full amount?
@Your Darkest Secret, You think a thorough essay that covers everything expected from you should receive an F just because it was only 23 out of 25 pages? That’s like hiring a person to fix your computer, telling them to fix it in 2 hours and they fix everything in 1 hour and 50 minutes and then you refuse to pay them at all.
@Your Darkest Secret, To specifically address your question, I don’t think that’s the same scenario.
@Earth Chan, if it was a guideline that it had to be 25 pages and everyone else around you turned in 25 pages then yes it should be a fail cuz you failed to turn in 25 pages. I’m not saying those 23 were not good but you missed one of the key tasks
@Your Darkest Secret, I’d disagree with this only because schooling is different than jobs. The point of schooling is to make sure that the student understands the subject matter, so if the student can cover all the material in 22 pages and has a clear understanding of it then why should they fail? Life has extenuating circumstances and in real life as long as you get the job done, that’s all that really matters (as Terra said with the computer metaphor)
@Earth Chan, Sorry to hear about your mom. Yeah all my classes in college would fail us if we missed 2 days a semester... even if we aced every exam and assignment, the point of college is to learn the material and we’re the ones paying for these lessons, as long as we learn that material and are respectful, nothing else should matter.
@Your Darkest Secret, I disagree that it was a key task. I guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree. Also idk how this got on this picture, I posted it on the next one... weird yo.
@Your Darkest Secret, They shouldn’t get full credit because they didn’t follow the guidelines but who the hell fails somebody in this scenario...? That’s worth like half a letter grade mark down at most, drop that from an A- to a B+ or a B, I mean if they’re telling the truth about covering all the information that is.
@Blasphemy is Fun, well the problem with the computer metaphor is the job was completed but in a shorter time. Now the teacher said 25 pages and he did 23. So the computer problem metaphor should say,” in the two hours that he said it’d be fixed, only 85% of it was fixed in that time.” I’m only saying this because I had the same thing happen to me on a 15 page paper and from then on learned if they say a certain number... do more than that number because there are those out there that can do it with no problem.
Edit: I mean he didn’t get it done... Someone can summarize in 20 pages but the assignment said 25...
@Your Darkest Secret, except that the point of the computer job is to fix it, and the point of an essay is to show that you have an understanding of the subject matter taught, not to show you can write 25 pages (unless they’re an English Major). Professors give a page minimum because that’s what they think it will take for a student to properly go over the material. If Terra actually covered all the expected materiel in 23 pages, then she/he clearly learned the info that she/he paid to learn. So they should get an A because they provided proof that they have a clear understanding of the subject matter. Now to be fair they didn’t follow the explicit directions to a T, so maybe they should get a B+, but an F? No way.
