B plus


Yesterday was my first day at the university of Leiden as guest lecturer. Before my class started I had coffee with a professor who told me an anecdote about another professor, fairly famous but dead. This man always gave his students a B+ (7). “Nobody deserves more than a B+,” he said. “To give less is not very kind. And if I don’t do this I have to actually read all that crap.”
