If a student negociates in a "what if" situation, e.g. "What if I don't
turn in this last assignment. I don't have enough time/interest/care to do
it. I just can't dooo it," they whine. "What will my grade be?,
particularly if he/she is being surly, I have a reply.
I usually smile my motherly smile and say "flunk you." There is always a
double-take usually followed by a laugh (often by someone standing nearby)
and an "Oh."
Try it. It is deliciously naughty.
