The Duck Syndicate

So I was sitting on the quad today eating my lunch, minding my own business, when I got assaulted by a female duck! She really wanted my sandwich. It got to the point where she was standing on the music on the ground in front of me I had been working on, and almost stepped onto my lap. Then she bit my toe! (I was barefoot) Finally, I distracted her long enough to shove it back into the tupperware container until she gave up and left. My lunch was finished in a very covert manner, with constant peeks over each shoulder to make sure she wouldn't sneak up on me. Man, talk about intimidation. And I thought I only had to worry about the squirrels. Teach me to trust the animal world.

Grading Complaints

Is there anywhere less extreme than here to complain about how something was graded? (There must be... A certain position in the department I can complain to, I don't know)

I don't mean an overall class grade. I mean an exam grade. I made an appointment to discuss it with my TA tomorrow, but she just sent out a mass email that said if someone felt their test was graded inaccurately, they could submit for a regrade for ONE question. I've never heard of that, and it sounds quite unjust.

So anyway, when we discuss tomorrow, I want to at least be able to say I will be complaining to (insert something official sounding) if this isn't reconsidered.

I don't want to make myself out to be an ogre. I've done plenty of tests in my career here, and plenty I've done poorly on. But this is the first one where I felt I was unjustly graded. :(
