It still exists believe it or not.

Today in College Comp I was printing out the first grade reports for the students.

I thought I had grabbed all of them, but when I handed them all out several were still missing theirs.

I was a bit too fired up to get them handed out and didn't wait for the printer to spit all of them out. So I ran over the the lab next door quickly to get the rest.

As I stepped out of the room, a student was there to meet me.

"Mr. Reynolds," he said rather sheepishly as he held up his grade report. "I didn't get a 49/50 on my first theme."

"Why would you even say that?" one of his peers said, shocked at what this student was doing.

"Are you sure?" I asked.

"Yes," he replied. "I got a 43/50."

"Why would you even say anything?" his friend said shaking his head.

"That's because he's an honest man," I said and clapped the student on the shoulder.

Sure enough, I had typed the score in wrong.

But his honesty made my day!

So did he at least get some bonus points for the honesty?
