Perhaps some of us have a crazy story or two about how we failed an exam. There are those who totally forget they have a test while others end up sleeping through it. But what if you failed your test because of a meatball? Yes, a meatball – from a sandwich!

That’s exactly the viral story of Sam Lee and her fallen meatball mishap. The 20-year old is a student at the University of Georgia who was taking an online Economics class at that time.

The student shared how the meatball fell from her sandwich and onto her keyboard. The incident caused her to log out of the test. When she tried to log back in, this is what greeted her:

She can no longer continue the test and already earned a 39% mark.

The panicked student then took 6 hours writing a letter to her professor. She even attached a picture of her and the culprit meatball sub!

And the reply of the Professor? Well fortunately for Sam Lee, her unusual excuse amused the professor and she was permitted to take the test again.


Below is the response of Professor Lastrapes:

Luckily the professor was considerate enough. He even humorously added to make sure to retake the test before or after dinner.
