Sam was eating meatball sub while taking her exam when a part of the meatball fell onto the keyboard and logged her out of the test. This funny accident caused her to fail her test and she was left with no option but to beg her professor for a retake.
20-year-old Sam Lee, who is a college student at the University of Georgia, was taking her economics test when an unexpected thing occurred. She was giving the test while eating her favorite 'meatball sub' when accidentally the part of the meatball fell on the keyboard. The meatball caused some malfunctions with the laptop and caused the test to submit itself resulting in her failing the test with a grade of 39 percent. Lee decided to tell the truth to her professor. She emailed him about the weirdly funny situation and surprisingly her professor was very understanding. He extended the deadline and recommended Sam to take the test either before or after dinner.
Sam Lee was taking an economics test while eating the meatball sub when accidentally the part of the meatball fell out of her sub onto the keyboard and logged her out of the test.
Lee didn't know what to do at that time and ended up failing the test with a grade of 39 percent.
She decided to email her professor explaining to him the whole situation. She begged to him for a retake of the test after failing at 39 percent.
"I had some technical difficulties and outside distractions during the test today," Sam, a junior at the University of Georgia, wrote in the email.
"Something hit my computer and caused it to submit the test when I had less than half of the questions answered. By something, I mean a meatball that had tragically fallen onto my keyboard as I was taking the exam. This said meatball caused some malfunctions with my laptop and caused the test to submit itself."
She added: "I completely understand that a falling meatball is no excuse for the failing grade on this exam, but is there any possibility of retaking this test?"
Her professor replied: "Samantha, well, this is certainly a new and unusual excuse for a low score! But for that reason it seems unlikely you've made this up.
"I've extended your deadline for themodule 6 test until midnight tonight."
He added with a smiling emoji: "I would recommend you take the test either before or after dinner."
She captioned the post: "Remember in high school teachers would be like 'your college professors will not tolerate this kind of behavior'."
In an interview with BuzzFeed, she said: "I was overjoyed with his response."
Lee also told the people how she retook that test and did 'slightly better'.
