Lucky me! The second year students had voted me ‘best tutor’ so now I was obliged to see them every Tuesday. Someone had even posted the voting papers to my office door (back on the D corridor) just in case anybody doubted the outcome of the ballot.
Coming first in a popularity contest was the last thing I needed, especially since this generated even more work. I still had 400 emails to plough through before I could settle down to any worthwhile tasks.
