Forrest Gump was wrong. Life isn't like a box of chololates; it's like a standardized exam. People expect you to know everything about something you know nothing about, yet when it comes to something simple, such as writing your name, you are treated like an idiot who knows nothing.

PSATs were today, thus the inspiration for this post.

Oh my goodness, I know exactly what you mean!! I, too, felt talked down to during the beginning of the PSAT.

Teacher: "Okay, now right the first 5 letters of your LAST name in the first box (That's your surname, class), the first 4 letters of your FIRST name in the second one, and the first initial of your MIDDLE name if you have one, in the last box over there."

(pause that seems to last half an hour)

Teacher: "Okay? Done? Now, make sure that you fill in the bubbles beneath it. For each letter, COMPLETELY fill in the bubble that corresponds to the letter, like I told you how to do, remember?"

Me: *sigghhh of boredom*
