Guess I'm Not a Complete Math Retard After All

You Passed 8th Grade Math

Congratulations, you got 8/10 correct!

I saw this on Crayonz site, so I thought I would give it a whirl. I only posted the results because I passed. Take THAT Mr. Jonas, for actually calling me "STUPID" when I screwed up a problem at the board. I also didn't appreciate it when you asked me why I couldn't be smarter like my sister. While I did answer you straight away that I was adopted, you said something like, "Well, that explains EVERYTHING." You are the only teacher I ever had whom my parents LOATHED. They always sided with my teachers until you told them how lazy I was. My father nicely pointed out that he and my sister worked with me 4 hours EVERY SINGLE NIGHT to pass your stupid class. They came home and told me to drop your class.

Hey, Mr. Jonas, I heard you got fired a few years later for being an ASSHOLE. Shocker.

Oh, wait--he taught 10th grade math. Crap.

AAAWWWWW YEAH!!! I got 10/10.

Suck it, Mr. Scharp, you Math Nazi. And I chew gum now whenever I darn well please.

What the hell was ^? I didn't even know what that was but I answered it anyway.

Squared. You can't type a little 2 next to the number, so that's how they did it instead.

By the way, if Mr. Scharp actually saw this, I'm sure he'd be so excited (note the sarcasm) that after 18 years of education, I brag about passing 8th grade math.

Holy hell, I got 7/10! I was really sweating there for a moment. Poop AND math success--my day rocks!

Candace said...

Yeah, I don't think I'd pass.

My nemesis teacher was Mrs. Baird in third grade, who gave me a C- in music. The next year (THE NEXT YEAR) I won a silver medal for getting the highest mark in the province (THE ENTIRE PROVINCE) that year for my grade four Royal Conservatory of Music piano exam.

Suck that one up, Mrs. Baird... C-, I snort in derision.

(And in case you're wondering, that medal was pretty much the apex of my musical career, though I still do play the piano!)

I refuse to hurt my own feelins, so i'm not taking the test. my daughter is in the 7th grade and my son is in the 8th. i tell her to see her brother for help and him to find his father.
my therapist told me to stay away from math and i'm sure he knows what he's talkin bout.

I got a 9/10 and nothing could have shocked me more. I know most of my math teachers took pity on me because my parents grounded you for anything less than a anything. Math was hard for me, but I teetered between a C or a B all my life. No tutoring and no help...except after school with the teachers who felt sorry for me.

Now I find out I'm not so much of an idiot after all. I could have used that little bit of information earlier.

That's pretty funny. I hated my 10th grade math teacher too. But I still loved math.
