Just some thoughts:
Three young male college students were scheduled to take a final exam. The evening prior to the exam the young men fell prey to “wine, women and song.” They fell in such a manner that the wine, women and song lasted far into the night and even well into the early morning. So much were the activities of the evening that they failed to show for their scheduled final.
The day following the scheduled exam the three young men went to see their professor. They told the professor the reason they had missed the exam was all three of them had gone out of town together and on the return trip they had a flat tire. In regards to the circumstances that caused them to miss the exam they asked if they could make it up the next morning. The professor told them, “Sure.” They were told to report to the professor’s office at 8 A.M. the next morning and they would be given the exam.
The following morning the three of them showed up. The professor then told the first young man to go to room 215 for his exam, the second young man to room 217 for his exam and the third young man to go to room 219 for his exam.
Each young man sitting down in his assigned room opened the test folder, noticed the test was only one sheet and only one question. The question was: “Which tire was it?”
I think all would agree the young men were asked a question for which they had not prepared.
Were you ever in such a situation?
Truth be told I think we all have been asked a question we were not prepared to answer.
