{{Dad then asked his daughter why she didn't go to the Dean's office and request that 1.0 be taken off her 4.0 and given it to her friend who only had a 2.0. That way they would both have a respectable 3.0 GPA.
Then, she could also give her friend half the money she'd earned from her job so that her friend would no longer be broke. }}

I know I have said this before, but I had a political science teacher hwo kept going on and on about how it was impossible for anyone who grew up in a apalachia to succeed. He talked about how hard it was to grow up in a mobile home and that these people needed government handouts.

I then raised my hand in class and asked him "Since I have been so clearly disadvantaged growing up in a mobile home in apalachia, will you give me some more points on my exam?

Needless to say the extra points were not forthcoming.
