I was wandering around a hall yesterday, supervising 130, 16-17 year olds who were doing a Mathematics exam.
Just to pass the time I counted the watches, either on wrists or on the tables.
Keeping in mind that no mobiles are allowed as watches or anything else, I counted a total of
12 watches !
Now, this can't be right I thought. Must just be the Maths students, so I went today to an Art/Photography/Drama written exam.
126 students :
10 watches !
They keep time by a clock on the wall btw.
I know this has been discussed on here before but I thought some hard, if anecdotal evidence of the decline of the wristwatch amongst generation Y would be interesting.
Any thoughts ?
