Once I couldn’t find my uni ID for a while. I met my tutor at the gate in the morning and told her I will be a few minutes late, as I need to fill out a form to get a temporary entry pass. She asked the security instead to let me in and we went to class together.
On the way to the classroom I told her I stayed up late to get ready to my presentation and how great progress I made with my project.
When it was my turn to present I told her I needed a few minutes to get ready.
She thought I was just bragging about my project in the morning and wanted to call me out on it.
I tried to explain that I stayed in the uni library until close and wanted to pick up my prints on the way out… when I noticed I was missing my card.
(So all my data is in the cloud, all I need to do is to couple my implant with my username and password on one of the xerox machines and press print. I was working on multiple computers the night before so the alternative solution would be to log in to all the computers I used, email the files to her, log in to another computer with her account and then print all my staff.)
I couldn’t tell her what I put in brackets, because the conversation was something like this:
-I need a few minutes to print, I miss my card…
-Here is mine, print from this!
-No, I don’t need your card, I need a few minutes and I sort it out.
-But you said you don’t have a card, you trying to make me fool or what??!!
-I don’t need a card.
-So how you gonna print?
-With my hand.
-Not literally, but literally.
-Okay, so show me.
So I lifted up my hand…
-What is in your hand??
-Nothing… it’s actually my finger, but you don’t want to see that I guess.
-You guessed wrong! I do!
So I had to flip the bird to my tutor, my flexNT was installed in my middle finger. Then she warned my to write a report about my behaviour, that I agreed on if she followed me to the library to put the situation in context… My friend overheard this conversation from the other room and came to ask what we were yelling about.
-About this: ..i., (I flipped the bird to her as well.)
-Awww, your chip! By the way, you left your ID card in the studio the other day, I picked it up for you, here it is…
By that point I was sweating, my tutor was red-angry with me, but my friend explained she saw me printing with my implant before.
Then we found a xerox machine, I demonstrated how to print with the implant, I said what I wrote in brackets above and got a good feedback on my project.
