Teachers have been nailing students for years with that one! Human nature is something I never tire of observing...

Akelamalu said...

buffalodickdy

Re Question 13 (unlucky for some): Write out a hundred times "around," not "aroudn" as written.

I had a teacher pull this truck one time. She said follow the directions completely before taking the test. The directions were to put your name in the top right corner and turn it back in.
Most of us failed! *LOL*

Akelamalu said...

Psst Bee, so did I! :(

Akelamalu said...

Well spotted dumdad you passed the test! ;)

Akelamalu said...

Thanks hootin'anni, glad you enjoyed it. :)

Akelamalu-Please allow me to apologize for my sons' rude comments when you visited his blog. He is extremely opinionated and works in an industry where impolite behavior is apparently common. He was not brought up that way, and I have already written him a response I bet he won't have the guts to post. So sorry.

Akelamalu said...

Crazy working mom
Those darn teachers eh! :)

Akelamalu said...

buffalodickdy
I'm not sure who your son is honey? I haven't noticed a rude response anywhere I frequent, but thankyou for taking the time and trouble to apologise - you are a true gentleman. :)

Ake- Space cadet R(bouncybouncy.blogspot.com) If he didn't live 600 miles away, I'd kick his ass right now!

Akelamalu said...

buffalodickdy
Ah I remember now. I just popped over to take a look and resisted the urge to shove a rocket up his A$$. I'll leave that to you - thanks honey. :)

I did this test in about 5th grade. I remember imeediately scanning to the end because it struck me as suspicious, so I was finished in seconds. I also remember the poor schmuck who announced his name.
