It was the final examination for an introductory English course at the
local university. The examination was two hours long, and exam booklets were
provided. The professor was very strict and told the class that any exam
that was not on his desk in exactly two hours would not be accepted and the
student would fail. A half hour into the exam, a student came rushing in and asked
the professor for an exam booklet.
"You're not going to have time to finish this," the professor stated
sarcastically as he handed the student a booklet.
"Yes I will," replied the student. He then took a seat and began writing.
After two hours, the professor called for the exams, and the students
filed up and handed them in. All except the late student, who continued writing. A
half hour later, the last student came up to the professor who was sitting at
his desk preparing for his next class. He attempted to put his exam on?
the stack of exam booklets already there.
"No you don't, I'm not going to accept that. It's late." The student looked
incredulous and angry.
"Do you know WHO I am?"
"No, as a matter of fact I don't," replied the professor.
"DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?" the student asked again.
"No! and I don't care." replied the professor with an air of superiority.
"Very Good," replied the student and quickly lifted the stack of completed
exams, stuffed his in the middle, and ran out of the room.
