ridiculous, right?

So last week I had to go people watch for a paper in my communication class. My professor didn't really give us much direction except to watch people, and give 5 examples of specific interactions.

So. I did just that. I went to Chick-Fil-A, got some dinner, and started watching. I got my 5 examples and with intro and conclusion the paper ended up being about 6 pages.

She gave our papers back yesterday. I flipped through page 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. There were no comments. No corrections. NOTHING—until the very last page where at the bottom, in small print was “100”.

I glanced around and the papers around me had marks, comments, and corrections- and lower grades.

Am I crazy for feeling jipped? I’m the type of person who desires feedback—so I was kind of upset I didnt get any….not even a correction to grammatical errors I KNOW were in there.

When I was in high school, all my teachers refused to give “100’s” on papers because they felt there was no such thing as a perfect paper. Theres always room for improvement or some crap thing like that….

I always thought they were crazy, and I remember being annoyed when I would get papers back that looked like someone had bled out on them…..and now, I experience the complete opposite and I’m annoyed too.

I am crazy right?

I mean, really, I should just be thrilled with a 100.

I’ll just move on….

…..but like, she could have at least written “good”…..
