Right. Me either. But my background was more in the sciences and grades were based on things like tests and labs.

Tests for example, were graded by computers and you were either right or wrong on a calculus test.

OTOH I can see it as a good life lesson because often you have to kiss up to your boss and its always good to be on the good side with your professor.
