Today, I failed a major exam. It wasn't because I didn't prepare for it, though. I failed because somebody sneezed during it and I said "bless you." Apparently, that's classed as cheating. FML
I agree, your life sucks 37 129
You deserved it 3 664

Hi OP here. Thanks for all the supportive comments. I got my mum to go in and complain to my school but they kept insisting that 'rules are rules.' So maybe bless you secretly means the answer is C but I will certainly never bless anybody when they sneeze in the middle of an exam again.

Next time your prof sneezes condemn him to Hell. "May your soul belong to Satan, you unholy demon-spawn. "

Everyone knows that bless you means the answer is C!

Not sure why this if downvoted. I found it funny.

So did I. I kind of hope the OP does it, without getting in trouble!

Reminds me of the FML post saying that the teacher thought two people were cheating from them having colds- the teacher thought their sneezes was a form of communication.

#10 All the religious freaks out there were probably "offended"

you can be religious and find it funny. I know I did.

#47 Thus the wording "religious freaks" with focus on the freak. For example the people in the Westboro Baptist Church maybe

Ehh idk, the westboro baptist church seems to condemn just about everybody to hell. I'm religious and found his comment funny, but I wouldn't consider myself a freak either.

I remember that to. It was sniffles though

I've done that. It didn't go over well. Lol!

So apparently being a nice person is considered cheating these days...

Apparently according to #17 the answer was C

your profile pic is so suitable for your comment

I read an FML recently where these two kids were both given zeros on a test because they were both sniffling and the teacher thought they were "speaking in code" hahaha ridiculous.

Wow didn't know being polite counted as cheating

Wow, that's a ridiculous reason to fail you. Can't you put in a complaint or something?

Everyone knows that bless you means the answer is C!

Actually is means the answer is b

I thought it meant Istanbul

Well, remember the mix up a few years ago where they handed out the second paper for higher level English by a mistake? This would not be the first derp caused by examiners in this country.

Just goes to show how fucked up our education system is.

I agree, but OP kinda sorta lives in Ireland

I should really start looking at the locations.

I always say bless you when someone sneezes even during exams... If this happened to me I'd be so pissed. You should see if there's anything you can do to change that. Sorry OP!
