and decided to make sure to do everything in his power to fail the student in his exams.
In the oral exam, he gave the student the hardest questions, but the student had incredible answers for everything. Therefore, hoping he could still fail his victim, the teacher asked him a trickier question:
“You’re walking on a road and you find two bags. One contains gold, the other cleverness. Which bag do you choose?”
“I don’t agree. I would choose cleverness, because that’s more important than money.”
“Everyone would choose what they don’t have” says the student.
The teacher turns red, and he is so outraged he writes “ass” on the student’s paper. The student leaves without looking at the paper. However, he returns shortly, gives back his paper and says:
“Excuse me sir, you did sign my paper, but you forgot to give my grade!”
