'F' is for Fuhgeddaboudit

I am a 13 year old girl...and I’m known to get straight As all the time. But I had a pop quiz which was HORRIBLE and I’m sure i failed. I just don't know what I'll tell my parents....they'll be so disappointed.
I can't sleep until I get the paper...it's driving me crazy.... grades matter to me a lot and what on earth am I supposed to do with an "F" ?!

I really, really need some advice. I need to calm down or I think I might end up bursting with panic!! -- Worried

Dear Worried:

Enjoy these problems now because soon you will be faced with unplanned pregnancies, death and having to work the rest of your life with a bunch of assholes you hate.                                  




















Dear Worried:

You’re smart right? Well, then you’ve gotta be smart enough to know that high school grades are important, but they’re not the end of the world. There’s a laundry list of successful Joe’s who have dropped out of school, and although I’m not telling you to say sayonara to Senior High, I can say with certainty that if you’re smart enough to be a normally ‘A’ student, then flunking one lousy test is akin to making a runny omelet. No one will ever remember except you.

The better question is, why did you fail? Why now? As a regular smarty, to totally fail a quiz – well, it means a) you had never heard the material, b) you usually cheat, or c) something is distracting you.

My guess is that it’s ‘c’ and there is more to the story, like a boy, a beast, or a man-boy. And if that’s the case, you need to make a decision about how distracted you’re going to allow yourself to get. Because grades are just grades, but giving up your future for some schmuck who says he loves you can last a lifetime.
