Iím often in a simulator by myself, doing calibrations and setups. I can get up and leave the simulator pilot seats unoccupied and the sim unfrozen in alternate law in level flight with constant thrust at high altitude, with A/P & A/T disconnected, and take a ten minute phone call in the back.

When I come back, the only significant change in conditions will be that the sim is now about 70-80 NM down the road. When I climb back in a seat, at this point I can take additional time for mental preparation.

Tolerant? Graceful?

True, it is a sim, but maybe you get the idea.
You are lucky .. never the plane go in a right bank .. when you was making your call
