haha happened to me last year. i taking a test about sine cosine and all that, then the calculator gave me a negative answer which is impossible to get, right? then i whispered to my friend beside me and she said it has to be on degree. thank God . lol just saying! :)
Hahaha. And you didn't notice this at all...Shame on you, not the calculator.
Agreed...I've also been in multiple classes at the same time that generally use different settings, and there were many homework assignments or exams/quizzes that I started in the wrong setting, but realized as soon as I got a really odd looking answer. I can totally understand not remembering to check the setting, but if you couldn't tell once you started getting answers...you either weren't paying very much attention (bad idea during a test) or you don't really understand what you were supposed to learn...
ydi for not checking the settings of your calculator for a maths exam! maths is all about the calculator. one wrong punch of numbers will lead you to failure.
not even worth posting on FML...feels like a wasted 2 seconds reading it.
Sorry if the op didn't post that his grandmas throat was slit and his parent died in front of him in a double suicide. Jeez dude do all fmls have to be massive Fuck My Life moments before it can be considered an FML. This site is supposed to be about lifes average failures so we can get a good laugh.
