The last oral exams for this semesters. It started troublesome with the professor, the second examiner, being absent and showing up 90 minutes late. He called his secretary regularly from the traffic jam to keep us updated were he was. At least he was going to show up at all, I told my student. Last time we both served as examiners in the same exam, he had forgotten that there was an exam scheduled at all and was not in or near the city. Luckily the student today knew this professor quite well from a couple of classes she had taken with him, and was completely relaxed. This exam went well and I was happy that this little undergraduate dealt so cool with the situation.
