In honor of yesterday’s final exam, I got a few of the requests “Can I use the restroom?” A few times ago when I proctored, this was one situation:
Noah is watching for suspicious behavior and hands for questions.
A student raises their hand.
Noah approaches the student’s seat.
STUDENT: “Can I use the restroom?”
NOAH (deadpan): “I’m a proctor, not a proctologist.”
(pause 1 second)
NOAH: “But yes, you may go.”
OK, so you can call me pedantic, a grammar nut (despite the fact that I am also a mathematician!), Mr. Raider, insufferable, etc. Was the deadpan comment out of line?
Today is the three-hundred and forty-fifth day of M.M.X.I.V. That makes forty-nine weeks and two days.
Today is the three-hundred and forty-seventh day of Mission 441. Ninety-four days remain.
