A state adopts strict new insurance self study Continuing Education requirements for its agents. The tests they now require are very difficult, can take no more than an hour to complete, and must be taken at a certified testing center.
On the first day of the new requirements, an agent wanders into a testing center a half hour late.
“You’ll never finish this test on time,” the test administrator coldly states.
“Just give me the test,” replies the agent, “I’ll finish it.”
Skeptically, the administrator gives the agent the test.
The time limit comes and passes and yet the agent still has not completed the test. Finally, a half hour after the test time limit, the agent brings his test up to the administrator, who is correcting a large stack of tests.
“You can’t turn that in,” states the test administrator, “you knew there was a time limit.”
“Do you know who I am?” replies the agent.
“No”, says the administrator.
“DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM???” the agent says more forcefully.
“No, and I really don’t care” replies the administrator, slightly annoyed.
“Good,” says the agent, who quickly shoves his test into the middle of the stack the administrator is correcting and walks out the door.
