It was halfway through my final paper for my management course that I realized one glaring sentence in particular looked suspicious out of context.So I did what any grad student does when presented with red flags… bothered another student to see if they too were experiencing an odd sentence or two.
“I’m referencing ‘Matilda’ in my final paper,” I immediately messaged to fellow classmate Emma. “It just felt right but anyone who just reads the first paragraph is gonna get real confused.”
The more I thought about it, the more I realized that my past academic assignments are a treasure trove for out of context confusion. And since I’m not selfish (usually), I’d like to share my bizarre findings with you all, sans explanation. Have fun unpacking all this!
