Heres my story... My dad recently made a deal with me, If i get 80s or over in everything this term exept french (need to get 70s) he would buy me a Compaq Presario V2000. For some people, getting 80s is a walk in the park. I will be gettin my 3rd report card somewhere around april. To give you guys an idea of my notes here they are (1st and 2nd) 1st Term, 2nd term French - 70,61 History - 65,57 Physics - 86,70 Math - 82,79 English - 93,88 My notes this term so far have been pretty good (almost all averaging over 80) but with a long way to go for april, I still have a lot of work to do (especially for History,French and math, seeing that there all getting harder by the minute. But what im worried about the most is I get high 70s and I dont get my laptop. So my question is... To all the dads out there, how would you feel if i got high 70s in hisory and math and low 70s in french. I usually fail french. Would you consider the laptop? Would you just flat out say no? I need the most opinions I can get. Thanks to all iPaul EDIT - I will post my notes for the 3rd term and the answer I get from my dad as soon as I get them.
