Final marks: stalling my summer vacation

On my chem lab exam, did I say fumaric and maleic acid are alkenes?

All my exams are finished. My summer vacation should have officially started April 24.

But it didn’t.

Because right now, I can’t enjoy playing Halo 3 with my friends. I can’t relax and read a book. When I watched Righteous Kill last weekend, I suddenly remembered question 14 of my chemistry lab exam, and then spent the next hour and a half wondering, “Did I say fumaric and maleic acid are alkenes?”

My summer vacation can’t begin.

At least, not until I know what my chemistry lab mark is.
