Had a proctored midterm today (testing center at the campus library). There were too many people, so some of us were placed at regular computers where anyone can come in to do homework/check email/etc. Half way through the exam, a woman came in, obviously in desperate need of a kleenex. She spent a half hour sniffling (the loud, wet swallow sniffle) and hocking pretty much every other time she breathed. Finally after getting dirty looks from the entire room for a half hour she went in search of something to blow her nose.
The proctor walked right past her several times and never said anything, so I figured there was nothing I could do. But now I see my exam score - the only thing I missed was the question I was working on when she arrived, and it's wrong because of a typo, not a mistake. At that point I was focusing more on just getting it done without throwing up. Wish I'd said something. Would you have?
