Today, my professor handed me back a paper I spent hours hours working on. At the bottom in red it said "D" followed by, "That was a gift." FML

Spending hours working on something doesn't mean it was any good. You should think about speaking with the writing tutors on your campus.

ask him if it comes with a gift receipt

and ur point is?

That was super pointless number 12.

Why do people believe that just pouring time into something will automatically make it good? If I spend an hour taking a dump, while you spend 15 minutes, we'll still both just end up with a pile of shit. Spending copious amounts of time on something, especially if it's significantly more than others would spend to do the same task, is NOT a sign of extreme effort - it's a sign that you don't really know what you're doing. Spending hours writing a paper doesn't matter in the slightest if the paper you end up writing is on the wrong topic, or you didn't follow the directions, or if you can't string together a complete sentence. That time would be better spent learning to write a good paper.

I signed up specifically to upvote this - it is very true, and something that many people do not understand. Still, I do have sympathy for the OP.

I think OP did hers on the Louisiana Purchase.

I feel for you; been there. Some profs you just can't win with. FYL.

Or maybe OP just wrote a really shitty paper...

Or maybe the professor is a dick. I'm leaning toward that option, since he felt the need to add a snooty comment...

Sick tat. ^^^ Maybe you should ask WHY he gave you a D so you know what needs to be improved on.

I mean, if it's that bad, I'd rather the teacher just give it to me straight...

Time for some Sex-tra credit!

XD that happened to me, but in my case, I got a D minus. srry thou. I know how much it suck...

omg. I just realized that I put my comment after the guy who put sextra credit..... yea it sucks!!!

25-1 kd isn't that impressive.

Well it kind of is. That's 1/3 of his team's kills and he went the whole match dying 1 time. But it wouldn't be impressive though if most of his kills came from a gunship or other killstreaks

How long did it take for the tutors to help you write this?

That was on Nuketown :) And most of my kills were with using my kill streaks, which is actually why I died. If I would've been on my gunner when I first got it I probably wouldn't have died at all. Thanks for the vote of confidence. ;) My final correction is that the 'he' needs to be changed to 'she'. Lol @ the tutor comment. I assure you I didn't take up /that/ much of their time during the composition of my brief FML comment. ;)

is tht xbox or ps3

When Ops first came out we would spend hours only playing Nuketown, it was awesome. Now it hardly ever comes up for me *sadface*

hm...made of of his religion perhaps?

ask him if it comes with a gift receipt

Just like LeBron in the 4th quarter!

just like lebron in any quarter! GO MAVS!

a d is better than an f.....

congrats! you understand what OP's professor was implying!!! holy shit, you're so damn smart!!!!!

Gees, calm down sergeant sarcastic.

12, u mad bro? People on this sight need to take a chill pill...

I would have rather received an f...

In some colleges, a D is an F.

and in some its a 75-84%

Be happy! People usually don't get gifts from their professors..

This definately reminds me of Tommy Boy... OH MY GOD..... I PASSED!
