I’m passing out finals to my third period algebra 2 class.  I get to the desk of one girl, LM, and as I’m laying the test on her desk she says, “I’m exempt.”

“No you’re not.  The exemption policy is you are exempt if you have a C or better and less than 3 absences.  You’ve missed 7 days and your grade is D-.”

“No, I’m exempt.   Ask my counselor.”

“I don’t have to ask anybody, you’re taking the test.”

“No I’m not.”  And then she got up and left.

I get an email a few minutes later from the counselor. 
Mr. W,  LM  is exempt from her finals.  She has a doctor’s note and is suffering from short term amnesia.   Please record her final grade as whatever she had without her final.

WTF?  I responded and asked if anyone has verified this doctor’s note.  Apparently they have.

I have to at least give her credit for originality.
