A Conversation With A Student


Him: “It’s too easy to get an A in this class.”

Me: “Why do you say that?”

Him: “I have an A. I never get A’s”

Me: “Do you do all your work?”

Him: “Yes.”

Me: “Do you try your best most of the time?”

Him: “Well, yes.”

Me: “Are you respectful to other students and me?”

Him: “I guess.”

Me: “Well, then why shouldn’t you get an A?”

Him: “I guess I deserve it, then.”
