When you don’t expect a Pop Quiz:
1 Your mind immediately goes blank and you cannot think to save your life.
2 There is a ticking time bomb in your head or Jeopardy music to remind you that you are running out of time.
3 You only get good grades when you study, and you have no clue what is on this quiz. No fair!!
4 You want to get the best grade possible. You are regretting not sitting next to someone smarter since you are looking off of their paper.
5 Your teacher or professor is evil. They are purposely trying to catch you off guard, and you don’t appreciate it one bit. Someone is going to have flat tires. Surprise!
6 Just because you are in a bad mood doesn’t give you the right to take it out on me.
7 So you want to know how smart I am? If this wasn’t timed, I would give you a piece of my mind right now and tell you what I really think of your stupid quiz.
8 I will forgive you for being inconsiderate if you tell me that this quiz doesn’t count towards my grade.
9 Hey genious, tell me when we are having a quiz and I will be ready for it. How bout that?
10 I am afraid this isn’t a good time for me. My hands are shaking, my palms are sweaty, and I am hyperventilating. This quiz might just kill me!
