Mary:              Well, it’s like I was telling Mary . . . My Mom is like all bent outta shape about my grades in school last semester.


John:               Well you are a smart person Mary; I can’t believe your grades would be that bad.


Mary:              Well I did have one D.


Ron:                Hey, that happens, sometimes a guy just doesn’t quite understand a subject . . but your other grades would make up for that one D, right?
