Making the Grade

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?
