Test making stinks

I just wrote the first of 2 tests that I have to give in the class I'm teaching.

65 multiple choice, and 43 fill-the-name-in-the-diagram questions.

In 90 minutes. Shouldn't be a problem.

The REAL problem is the M**^(^F&%^*$G COPIER that won't do more than 40 sheets at a time before the roller heats up and the pages stick......

And it's always THE SAME F*)^%$$@G PAGE!


Did I mention it's past midnight?

So I'm here blogging and checking mail waiting for the stupid bitch copier to cool down...

I know how that feels. I have the same problem when I try and print something out for the class; it always messes up on the same page.

Consider reversing how you copy? Start with the last page? Amazing all the strange things you try when you have to get copies done in a hurry and the machine is filled with gremlins.

Breath easy... step back... move towards the fridge... grab a cool adult beverage and...

I guess that's one way to relax. ;^)
