Holy crap, Kate. 0_0
Oh, that’s adding injury to insult…
She needs the second year of Spanish to graduate? Things have changed since I was in high school. Anything past the first year of a foreign language was optional.
aww poor kate
That’s the worst – when you fail not because you don’t know your stuff but because you miss something simple yet significant.
Poor Kate. I’ve failed a test because of that before too. Stupid tricksy teachers! And now her hand is all owwie! Been there, too.
Kate’s hand is more “HOLYMOTHERF*CKINGSH*TTHATHURT!!” than owwie.
If she got a 27% after forgetting the back half of each page, that still translates into a rough 54% if she did remember them. She did manage to miss half of the ones she did answer.
Thats not true laughing. It depends on what questions are on the back. For example, if there are long responses or questions that are worth more than one the front, then you would get the discrepancy in score that Kate got. That being said, Kate wtf how did you miss that lol!
For me it was the other way around. My teacher didn’t notice I had written on both sides of the paper. I only noticed because he had written “where is question no 5?” – the only question to which the answer was entirely on the back side of the paper.
You’d think he would have realized when the answers to some of the other questions stopped mid-sentence.
Good thing that wasn’t a real exam, just a test.
And that’s why I kick instead of punching, I break the target and I have yet to get any serious recoil damage despite all the rage i put into every single kick.
I have NEVER understood the whole wall-punching thing. I’d see guys in high school with bloody knuckles, thinking they were bad ass, and think “Seriously? You got into a fight with a WALL? Loser.”
Frankly, I wouldn’t want to meet the guy who won the fight with a wall.
Hmm, well Thor it could be that she needed some electives and took just the minimum, Spanish II being the final one.
Fail my Spanish cause, I skipped some
I fought the wall and, the wall won
@ Tsapki – been a loooong time since i heard that song.
True story (although I wasn’t there to see it): Two guys found an abandoned house out in the country. The walls (wood) were half rotted and one guy punched a hole in the wall with no problem. The other guy tried it and just by luck picked a spot where one of the uprights (a 2×4) was. It turned out about as well for him as this did for Kate.
I hated when that happened back in high school…
I know a guy who broke several finger’s and fractured both bones in his right forearm by punching a brick wall. To be fair, he was trying to punch another guy in the head who happened to duck at the right time, so he deserved what he got.
Good sized dent in that locker all the same.
Jessie, it’s more about an immediate need to vent uncontrollable rage, not a desire to look tough. Unlike teachers, most walls don’t press charges. Though in my experience, vigorous pushups are a less painful and more satisfying alternative to punching walls. Plus that way you don’t get in trouble for vandalism
Then there’s always walking into a restroom and cursing for 5 minutes.
And the teacher waited till the last day, when nothing could be done about it? What an ass!!!
Mr Lis wouldn’t have needed to wait until the last day if he weren’t so busy doing magic tricks!
@Indigo: Well, it’s the final, it’s taken on the next-to-last day.
Despite all the purpose-of-wall-punching discussion, everything in the last panel is ridiculously well drawn! Especially the expression in Kate’s face
Seriously? When I went high school, the gap between finals and the last day were no less a week.
I remember my Spanish 3 final. I was the only one who didn’t cheat because I had that “I can do this moment!” I was the only one who failed. I should have just cheated.
Holy shit…did you get this joke from a rage comic on Facebook/9gag by any chance!? FOR SHAME.
I just noticed an error in this strip. “Exámen final” should be “examen final” — no accent (since the stress already naturally falls on the “a”). Though it could be taken as a subtle jab at the teacher’s skills, but I doubt that was the intention
What??? No. No. no no no no no no. No. Stealing from a rage comic would be like asking for culinary tips from the worst cook at McDonald’s.
