Judging by your name, I assume you play the bass. That makes this suck even more because the standup bass is an amazing instrument that takes a ton if talent and finesse to play well, especially well enough to be invited into a prestigious orchestra. I hope that you insisted on still playing with them! FYL indeed, I'd be both angry and sad in that situation.

I would've explained to the guys at the orchestra that you don't agree with your mother's wishes and that you'd be happy to accept. Is it a single parent household? If so: Sit down and talk to your mother about how being a perfectionist with your GPA has now elliminated a chance at obtaining a valuable refference and experience. If she has half a brain, she'll listen. If not: Bitch about it to Dad.

I know, right? I know someone like this whos parents go like "I can't believe you got a ninty-two on that test!" Parents like that need to realize that ninety-two average is a hell of a good grade compared to what half the class gets and, last time I checked, in almost every school half of the class graduates to a good college and gets a good job. God damm you slavedriver parents

It's her beauty on a ten point scale. A 3.7 is quite an ugly girl. To go under 4, you have to get into morbid obesity, festering boils, warts (hairy ones), meth mouth, unibrows, deformities, microcephaly (pinhead), male pattern baldness and carbuncles. Her mom was just telling the orchestra that her daughter is just too fugly to appear on stage.

Seriously, how old ARE you? GPA is grade point average. You get a 4.0 for an A, a 3.0 for a B and so on, and then they average it together. It means she gets almost straight A's with some B's, and her mom's a psycho who thinks those B's mean she is an inferior human being. Now that you know what a GPA is, come back when you hit high school and have one.

Ah. The old "ITS HAPPENS IN AMERICA SO ITS TRUE WORLDWIDE" mentality. If someone's lacking maturity, it'll be you. I bet you know shit all about the education system in England or Australia, but because someone doesn't know about the good ol' US system (which has a 47.6% failure rate according to the University of Minnesota: http://atheism.about.com/od/atheistbigotryprejudice/a/AtheitsHated.htm) they're obviously stupid. I'd like to say you do your country a disservice, but I've grown to expect this way of thinking from americans.

Agreeing with Stormix. Sunsh1ne, I could easily ask how old you are because you do no know how to spell mum, or secondary school-but I do not, because I know that is American, and respect your nationality, and American ways (at least some of them ;P). You, for one, will have to realise that the United States do not have the perfect system, that every nation on the globe copies. And Plexico: I loved the comment. :P

LadyKaya, I am almost ALWAYS joking when I comment on FML. The one about the kid with the rare genetic disorder yesterday really did bum me out, but I can hardly remember the last time I was really, really serious about a comment. This site is interactive comedy to me.

Not all Americans think the GPA is everywhere. In france I know it's out of 20... At my University we don't even have grades, we have written evaluations.

Please #42, don't expect such stupidity from us Americans. Some of us are actually smart about the rest of the world. Oh and it could also be the fact that that person isn't even in high school yet. I apologize for any dumb Americans who have annoyed you.

uh huh. 3.7 is basically epic fail to me, my family, and my friends. I've never gotten anything below a 4.25 GPA. Is 3.7 really that hard?

depends on which school you go to, i believe, basing on the context of the OPs post, their school grades GPAs on a scale of 0-4 while your school must be on a 0-5 scale, informate before you air your opinion

Well la dee da for you! Most of us have lives outside of school and can't be arsed to make everything perfect and get 4.25 GPA's Especially not so much that we get all A's in our weighted classes. Fuck that. All the weighted classes I was in resulted in a B. I'd like to spend time with my friends and still get a 4.0 instead of wasting my life at home perfecting projects just to get a few 5.0's

In many schools, you get more than 4 points for an A in advanced level courses. Unless you are in a school that uses a true 4-point scale, a 3.7 is not necessarily that impressive of a GPA. So, if you are willing to mislead us FML readers, I can only imagine what kind of BS you pass off on your poor mom! You probably blew the conductor anyway.

Wtf at this post. I'm not trying to say a 3.7 is lofty, but it should garnish enough respect to allow someone to choose how to spend their free time. I could understand < 3.0 receiving this response from the parents, but a 3.7 is fine... Meh, probably just a troll anyway

#23-- He's not a troll, he was making a joke. Read it over again with the "joke" frame of mind and you'll see that he was being funny. (at least to some of us, maybe not to you?)

Good thing you went to some garbage grade-inflation school, pelxico. Hey colleges! Our kids are so good that they get more than a 4.0! Nevermind that we artificially increase those numbers so our kids will actually be in way over their heads in their first college seminar. If you're so smart, you should be able to excel on the same grading scale, but with harder classes.

My school used the 4 point grading system. It offered a lot of AP level courses. Yeah, it was actually a pretty crappy school, but at least they didn't hide it behind grade inflation.
