Today, while at a big speech and debate tournament, I corrected the judge's use of the word "podium" instead of lectern, because that's what my debate coach had told me was the correct usage. Well, she didn't take it too well and neither did my partner. Or my debate coach. FML

  • Correcting the judge in front of everyone is kind of a dick move.

    A judge is there as some sort of expert and authority figure and to undermine them doesn't look good for your score.
