The longest 5 minutes of my life happened last week when I thought I had miscalculated the date of my final and looked at the clock to see that I was 10 minutes late and the exams weren't xeroxed yet. I don't know what I would do if this really happened.
Beats being late to your own funeral, I suppose, but sheesh, people, get it together. Then again, I'm sure the next series will be about professors who are late in posting grades, and I'm in danger of being one of those (in relation to at least one of the three different deadlines that have been mentioned in reminder emails so far), so I'm probably not in a position to throw stones.
They were late because of keeping up with CM's biggest week ever.
