“I had to sign up for an honors class oral exam time, and I accidentally missed my 8:30 a.m. time slot by an hour. It turned out that the professor was running late and had to go to the airport, so I didn’t end up doing my final until 3:30 p.m..”

“I had four finals in one day last semester, and now I have three in one day this semester, and it’s on my birthday.”

“I had a final project and I showed up to class thinking it was due the next class, but it was actually due that day. I had to leave class and write it up really fast, go back, and turn it in before class ended.”
