So I'm at work now administering the ACT and I'm wondering how Texas Instruments achieved their near monopoly on calculators. Of 25 kids taking the test right now, I have 22 using TI's and 3 using Casios.
That's pretty good market share.
PM: Well, some days everything comes together perfectly to prevent me from getting in a decent run. Had to be at work today earlier than the normal 7 am so no morning run. ACT testing so no lunch run. Wife had to work so no after school run, daughter had to go to math tutor so I couldn't get to the gym before the rush so I could get a treadmill. Got to the gym and waited 20 minutes for a treadmill to open up. One finally did and the belt slipped horribly over 7 mph. Waited 15 minutes for another treadmill and it was permanently stuck in -3% downhill mode and sounded like a herd of elephants when I ran on it. Waited about 5 minutes for another treadmill next to the worst smelling individual I've ever encountered. Attitude shot to he!! by this point. Ran 2.25 miles, quit and picked up the kids.
Sitting at home pouting now.
