My friend (and co-worker) and I were discussing the various ways students will try to get out of doing work and paying attention. They come to class but play on their phones, and it often happens that the ones who play are the ones who are failing. Coincidence? No, sir! We wonder if they don't realize that if they act like that on a job, they won't have a job for very long.
Then, my friend said this: "If everyone was just honest and did the work they were supposed to do, they would pass." Then, she laughed and added, "If everyone followed those two rules, the world would be a better place."
I agree, but I don't think it's likely to happen.
