Announce it to the world, shall we?

I got a C on the paper proposal I turned in last week.

But before you go jumping to conclusions, I am not a C student. 😛 It simply didn’t occur to me that the assignment would be graded. It was a paper proposal, for Pete’s sake, and since when are proposals graded? And so I turned in a proposal that was apparently a little too informal.

But the important point of this story is not my grade; rather, it is what my professor said about my grade—in front of the entire class, no less—as she walked to my desk to return my paper. She announced to the room, as if to underscore the fact that my offense was completely inexcusable, “Jamie, you really should not have gotten such a low grade on this assignment.”

Ooooh, thanks. Since when do we announce people’s grades to the whole room? 😛
