I was in my final year of university and I was feeling the pressure of doing well in my exams. I had been studying hard but I was still worried that I wouldn’t get the grades I needed. As if that wasn’t enough, I was also struggling to keep up with all my coursework. My friend was in the same situation and had been talking about how he was struggling to stay on top of things.
One day, after a particularly stressful day at university, I suggested to my friend that I’d do his coursework for him if he bought me three towers of beer. It was a joke, but he took me seriously and agreed to the deal.
We went to a bar and he paid for all 3 towers. I was shocked but I couldn’t turn down such an offer. I took the beer, thanked him and got to work on his coursework.
I worked hard and completed the coursework in time for his deadline. He was really happy with the result and thanked me for my help. I had never expected to be paid for my work but he insisted on compensating me for my time.
I was flattered by his gesture and thanked him for his generosity. I was now more motivated than ever to do well in my exams. I realized that it was possible to succeed even when the odds were against you.
My friend and I both ended up passing our exams and graduating with good grades. We both owed each other a debt of gratitude for helping each other out. We kept in touch throughout our post-university lives and still remain good friends to this day.
The whole experience taught me a lot about friendship, loyalty and the power of a good “bribe”.
It also showed me that it’s possible to succeed even when the odds are stacked against you. I’m grateful for my friend’s help and I’m proud to say that I got my degree thanks to him.
It’s safe to say that I was never expecting to be paid three towers of beer to do my friend’s university coursework. It was a unique experience that taught me a lot and I’m glad I accepted his offer.
