I got an 'A' in my Distributed Software Engineering class (that's "Distributed Software" engineering, not Distributed "Software Engineering", by the way). Normally I'd feel pretty good about the grade, but the professor posted _everyone's_ grades on a single page, in a table that shows the last 4 digits of the student ID, followed by grades for the project, exam, and participation, and the final grade. The lowest score in the class was a 54.95 (out of a possible 100). The lowest grade? B-.
Yeah... Suddenly an A doesn't feel like that much of an accomplishment. :(
