Marco from Memphis And the Story of a Liar.
Relax, said I, I will take time after I'm finished my other final and help you sort through the material. We'll call it a special review session.
She looked like she might hug me, her beatific smile warmed me. I was getting through to them; I was helping. I was going the extra mile (like the Adminiflakes ask us).
Still feeling good about myself, an hour later, I overheard that student and another while they stood in line at the coffee shop on campus:
Other: Did you say you had a car wreck this week?
Student: Oh, I said that. But I didn't. I just skipped class. I told the teacher that because I found out I missed all the review.
Student: Yeah, but I did total my car once, so I knew what to say.
Guess who's not going to make that special review session?
