She doesn’t read this site, so I should be safe — yes, this is a true story.
One of my nieces (on, cough, my wife’s side), is struggling in high school, even though she’s quite smart. Another of her uncles was just visiting, and when he asked how she’s doing in school these days, she told him this story.
She had an English test, and copied the answers from the student next to her.
How did she get caught?
She even copied — verbatim — what the student next to her wrote on the first question.
The question? “Name.”
(Yep, she’s blonde — bleached, though!)[Originally published 17 August 2009 — 12 years ago today — in the True Story section of my now defunct Jumbo Joke site.]
She’s doing fine today, with a good job.
