“I was grading your papers and I am happy to say that most of you did well on it. Others,” Miss Grady looked at me in particular, “not so well.”
Miss Grady handed me my paper and looked down on it, an F! She gave me an ‘F’! After the bell rang I walked over to Miss Grady’s desk.
“Miss Grady. I tried really hard on this homework assignment and I got an ‘F’.” I said.
“Maybe that’s because you did it completely wrong.” Miss Grady said. As she explained it to me I realized.
“But I didn’t understand the instructions.” I said.
“Too bad, you failed!” Miss Grady said.
