Peter: Sir, about my grade on the physics test... teacher: A "B" as I recall. Peter: Yeah, see, the thing is I was really hoping to start this school year off on a positive note. teacher: A "B" isn't a bad grade. Peter: Yeah, but it's not a POSITIVE grade, you know? It's just kinda neutral. teacher: I'd call it a positive grade. Peter: But you yourself told us the symbol for positive is a plus sign. Hint hint hint... teacher: Ah. Well, let's see what I can do... Peter: AAAA! A "D+" isn't a positive grade! teacher: You're really confusing me here, Peter.
