Four college students spent all night partying despite the fact they had an exam the next day. So they came up with a plan, which was to roll around in the dirt and go to the professor's office and tell him that they had spent all night pushing their car back to campus. Could they take another exam. And to their surprise, the professor agreed and said, "Come back in three days, I'll give you the test."

Three days later, they come back having had a chance to study and he put all of them into separate rooms. So four rooms; four students and handed each of them a sheet of paper.

Question number one, what is your name? And that was worth one point. Question number two, which tire was flat 99 points.

And thus folks recognize you can't BS people. Take responsibility for your choices, and be honest because it does come back to haunt you.
