I bribed a colleague with the promise of a book he's been asking for and came out of the afternoon invigilation. Didnt get away with it entirely, I'll go back...eventually.The worst thing about these MBA students is that they're too cocky by half. Majority of them have taken educational loans, amounting to above 6 lacs … Continue reading save me NOW!!!
Month: September 2006
I was telling the significant other (much to his uncontrollable amusement) that the invigilation duty they've assigned me for is just about the worst punishment for me yet. Especially since yesterday, when they have me doing double shifts. That works out to 6 hours totally of monosyllables of not even that.And many of the smart … Continue reading y-a-w-n
