So I was talking with a co-student earlier and a prof we share (who happens to be my favourite) comes up. This is three weeks after a seminar period where I was the only person who had a presentation less than 15 minutes long, let alone within the asked-for time of three minutes and less than a week after a seminar period for our ten-minute-max term paper presentations (which I couldn't attend, being unable to speak).
"So you know how she said that there were only a few people, so we could afford to go a little long?" he started.
"Well, guess what she did!"
"She cut you off?" I posited, with a raised eyebrow.
"Yes! She just asked me if I was watching the time!"
"Well, how long was your presentation?"
"Twenty minutes! Exactly what she asked for!"
"........................she asked for TEN."
He looked at me like I'd just swung a dead cat at him.
Am I the only person in that class who isn't LONG-WINDED AS FUCK/reads the requirements?
