Well, at least he thinks you made a smart offer. Hopefully he didn't end up underpaying you.

I don't understand how people can get bad grades. Except if you're on vacation or deathly sick, there really isn't any excuse to pay half attention most of the time and just turn in work when it's due. It's so easy to talk to teachers after class and talk about bad grades and how you can make up for them. Some teachers will bump your grade up just for taking the time to talk to them about it!!

^ How old are you and what school do you go to? I'm pretty sure teachers aren't allowed to bump up your grade just for speaking to them about it. But, you're right, if someone knows they're failing a class, they should talk to their teachers about it.

I think my comment got eaten, so I'll write it again, sorry if this gets double posted... @21- I meant if you did poorly on an assignment and you talk to the teacher if it's possible to re-do it and figure out what went wrong. I wasn't really clear on that, sorry. But I know that if I ever fail an assignment and I get permission to re-do it, I usually get at least half-credit back on it.

29) Lol. Yeah. Well, I did not do to bad in school myself but I could be known for misspelling myself. So don't worry about corrections. I just do it for a few giggles. I'm no grammar nazi in any way

15 - Man, you must go to the easiest school in the world. I think you should try to go to med school and see if you can win your teachers over with that attitude.

31- Not all teachers let their students redo a project/assignment/quiz even if you do try to talk to them about it. And some people get bad grades because they have trouble paying attention and/or don't fully grasp what's being taught even it was explained thoroughly. Your argument is invalid.

15- Seriously? You're going to come on here and tell people there's no reason to get bad grades? Get ready to be verbally beaten. I'll even take a turn... Not everyone licks as much teacher ass as you evidently do and most teachers don't give a crap. The way our education system is set up, lack of funding for schools, and lack of parental involvement are the top reasons for failing grades.

Sorry, 15, but I agree with a lot of the other comments. I bust my ass to make the great grades that I do, and I'm not humble about it for that very same reason. I never ask my teachers for a second chance. When I get a bad grade, it's simply because I didn't work hard enough.

I think 15 gets it. We don't need 6 different people replying to the same damn comment saying the same damn thing.

Cad6, sometimes you make funny comments, and sometimes you state the truth, either way, you do it with style

I kind of sort of half agree with 15... I've gone to instructors and explained my situation (medical condition) and almost all of them worked with me, but my situation isn't the norm. There are acceptable reasons to go to teachers about making up work, but most of the time that really isn't the case. If you shirk your responsibilities, that's your problem.

68- Or sometimes I get mad and post a fail comment. In my opinion, I don't really understand why I got thumbed down. All the people who responded to 15's comment essentially said the same thing, which was contradicting her. Why? Her comment was thumbed down, so obviously anyone contradicting her would get thumbed up. People post comments to boost their failed egotistical minds and enjoy a blissful happiness on the increasing number of +1's they get. Thumb me down ye trolls. I'm taking it with open arms.

You could try harder in school?

Just because you try hard in something doesn't mean you'll get an A+. There are those who do nothing and receive the highest grades, and those who try their hardest and fail to break past a C. And since this obviously bothers OP I assume that the lack of an A+ is not due to her slacking off in school.

If you smoke weed, you're grades can get as high as you do.

Totally agree with 48 because I used to be the kid who doesn't try at all and received great grades then I thought I could do better and ended up failing three classes when I started to try

Getting one A+ isn't that hard. Sure, some kids are smarter than others, but MOST of it is working harder and working smarter. Cognitive psychologists have done studies on this.

no 34....i used to sell things on ebay and there are so many assholes that'll do anything to get their money back and keep the "broken when it got there" item, so finding someone who cooperates is nice...
