Boss: Ok, let’s come up with some ideas… Let’s give each of the student a topic, and they will have to talk about it in one minute… Any other suggestions?

Me: Well, i’d go for a conversation, something more interactive, since this is an oral test…

Boss: ok, what i suggested is not perfect, but since we couldn’t come up with anything better, and we don’t have time left for more discussion, we’ll move ahead with it.

Comment: No comment. Because i was embedded in it, i wouldn’t be able to judge. Both of us knew that our ideas were not without fault, but we had different criteria, and from our own point of view, our proposal outdid the other.
