Good Grief

I have just been reading a press report that says children who suffer trauma just before an examination should be given one or two per cent bonus percentage points to compensate them, and to keep the exam fair.

A negative version of the same thinking occurs in court every day of the week. The defence lawyer says that his client chose to drive while disqualified because he was still traumatised by the death of his granny. Two years ago.
