still get an E for effort
You DO NOT want your brain surgeon to be the guy who did "just-enough-to-get-by’!
Like a few cartoonist that “got by” in art school (not the ones that did this strip).
" It’s the just enough to keep the teacher off my back work."
Ask him if that’s the amount of effort he’s going to put into his car.
As soon as he learns the word, he’ll start calling it his Mediocre Effort.
I just got by in school. I just got by in college. Very lazy. B average student straight through both.
My boyfriend in high school could not believe that I would not read the book, go to English class, raise my hand, & still give the correct answers. In college my now husband was amazed that I wrote a book report on a book I had only read 3 chapters of – first, a random middle, and last and got a B on it.
Never studied. Either I know it instinctively or did not know it. Currently I have to take online courses to be allowed to prepare income taxes (which I have been doing since my teens when I worked for my dad). I take out the answer sheet, read the questions and answer as many as I can. I then search the the reading material for the answers to the rest of the question. If what I was reading applied to my clients I would read it, but I have 5 clients with terribly simply tax returns and over 95% of the material in the classes do not apply to them and the rest is straight forward – some of them don’t even itemize.
I am very diligent in the accounting/tax work I do. Clients are rarely if ever audited as returns are correct. But in school work – very lazy.
