Spotted: What is Your Point

I gave our intern the task of transcribing a speech my boss had recently given. This saved only a fraction of the time it should (I later had to go through the speech to correct the outrageous amount of times she apparently misunderstood the English language, as spoken in the speech). She had been transcribing for about 30 minutes when she abruptly stopped, turned around, and said matter-of-factly, "I don't feel like transcribing anymore."

Trying not to laugh, I looked at her and said, "I am unsure what your point is." She went back to work.
