Overheard at a Towson University café.
Two students talking about a test they just took:
“I think I got an A,” the young woman says.
“Really? I’d be happy with a C. Why did you want an A. I’m just curious,” says the guy.
“Oh, I just want to keep my GPA up.”
“Why? I’ve read from various sources that college grades don’t mean that much.”
“Well,” says she. “I can get a discount on my car insurance.”
“What?? Car insurance shouldn’t give out discounts like that. It’s bribery in a way.”
Later, I thought: So what’s a grade then?
