Letters

Dear Administrator,

Really? This comes up now? On the Thursday of finals week? You want me to do what?! By when? Seriously? Why wasn't it done before? Why should I have to clean up this mess? How could this have happened? Why was this overlooked?

Don't you know that I am ON. THE. EDGE?!!!

Stunned,
GEW


Dear Union Pres,

Really? This comes up now, the night before the meeting? We can't do WHAT? Seriously? Why hasn't this come up before? It was on the agenda for weeks. How is this happening? Why was this overlooked?

Don't you know that I am. ON. THE. EDGE?!!!

At a loss,
GEW


Dear Santa,

For Christmas I would like to have entirely competent administrators who effectively lead the college and make sure everything gets done. I would also like extra hours in each day so that *I* can ensure all of my work is done. And also I would like resolutions to all conflicts between the goals of the Senate and the concerns of the Union.

Wishful,
GEW

Oh, HECK no! That is NOT fair. I will yell with you: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!

Now.

Back away from the edge, my friend. Santa has your letter and will certainly be back in touch soon. *hugs*

sadly sciDAD was just commenting on the end of the semester nonsense now that he is in admin and i noted 1. admins always seem to freak when they realize the faculty are leaving for a few weeks and 2. some really really poor planners end up in charge (which I'm pretty sure happens outside academia, but heck I'm NOT outside academia so what do I know/care about that?)

hang tight it will get better!

My word verification is thmkywee. I think that sums up the general sentiment, no?

I hope there is much port and chocolate at the end of this week to make the edge seem farther away. I can't have either right now, so I'm allotting you my share and then some.

I'm not sure you need Santa the Mediator. I think you need Santa the Fixer. Tarantino Santa...
