"Honestly there were so many times I wanted to slap the lady sitting next to us. Except for one in the group we are like 20 years younger than her and we are not married yet, we still have a life of our own, all her conversation was about her husband "my husband is the head doctor of surgery", "my daughter blah", "my son is in college", "we live there", LADY WE DO NOT CARE!!! BORING! Then, she said to ask her questions, well "mmm can you tell me how many pass the Boards?" and her answer was, "I don't really know, but my husband told me all the students are so intelligent and capable to pass any test"!!!"
