I get a 3 page essay, I write five pages to get a good grade. She fails me.

I get a makeup assignment for 5 pages, I write 6 to get an A. She fails me.

Lesson learned. Don't try in school?

Interesting. The lesson I would have learned is quality over quantity.

Maybe you should learn to follow directions.

In court, if a judge says "Don't write a brief over 25 pages", and you write a 30 page brief, he will lay down the smack on you, question your professional integrity, competency, and ability (in front of your client), and then maybe fine you.

And if he doesn't give you leave to amend your brief, you just might be SOL.

yes, I see where you get there, but the teacher told us all to go the extra mile. So I did.

I see "extra mile" as being properly written with excellent use of sources, seamless transitions between paragraphs, proper grammar, and a clear thesis, as opposed to just being 2 pages more than the requirement.

When you're told to write an X page paper, you stick strictly to X.

Its not an exercise in rambling. Its an exercise in expressing a view in a limited number of pages. Any slack jawed idiot can write a 200 page thesis on ****ed near anything. But you're going to have plenty of pages that have little to no substance to them.

I often bullshltted on my English papers and got good grades. I had the same English teacher for two of my high school years. She loved me because I behaved like a civil and logical student, unlike many of the dovchebags in my classes.
