Alright check this bullsht out.
At MSU, there's an online message board that some of the classes use called angel. I had some computer science course a long time ago. Anyways, ppl figured out you can change your name in the msg board, so people started posting as Arnold Schwarzenegger, J. Jingleheimersmitz, and so forth. I changed my name to Gary Coleman just for fun.
So anyways, fast forward a year, haven't used angel since I had that CSE course, I just got done finishing a 6 week online social science course, did well on all the online quizzes, final exam, etc. So anyways, a couple weeks later, I decide to finally check my grade, and it reads 0.0, so i figure its probably just a recording error since it has happened to me once before in another big class. I email the teacher about the mistake, and he writes back to call him, so now i'm like this is odd.
So I call him up, and in a short summary of the conversation, it turns out that there actually exists a Gary Coleman who attends MSU as a lifelong student, and there have been about 10 ppl involved in the process that have determined I was cheating. So I gave a call to the college of social science secretary, who wasn't there, so i wrote her an email telling her about gary coleman is a fictious name i used, and is from a TV star child actor from Diff'rent Strokes, and even gave her his famous catch line. And just said it was nothing but a bizaare coincidence.
I'm gonna try and call her up again today, not nervous or anything, because i suspect that so far hopefully i can communicate and they will be understanding of the error, but seriously can you beleive this bullsht? I'm not nervous now, but i hope they don't be dicks about it and give me a hard time. Anyways, hopefully, this will be a good laugh at least for yall.

Wasn't his catch line "watchoo doin'?" They're gonna think you're taking the pp if you've told them that.

Well, I called and left a voicemail for the secretary as i said in my earlier post at about 3pm today, and i just checked my email, and I got an email from my prof at 9pm (which is a really odd time) that said my grade will be reinstated. Thankfully, this is over now, I'm almost tempted to call up the secretary tommorrow and just bullsht with her about it, lol, of course I also don't want to be a jackazz and mess things up anymore, but hell it would be interesting to see what actually what went on in their minds.
