breaking bad

Exam

Yesterday I sat a three-hour exam. This is the first exam I have taken in over twenty years. I became completely absorbed in what I was doing. After about two hours I looked up and said in a really loud voice 'Can I have some more paper, Chris?'. Bloody fool. I forgot that you are supposed to be quiet in an exam. What an idiot.

Funnily enough the question-answering bit came back to me without too much trouble, it was just the etiquette I managed to mess up.
