I'm so sick of the travel needs of my students this summer. I have three who are working people. Yes, good for them. IN THIS ECONOMY!
Anyway, it seems that every class they come to me with new details about their work travel. "I can't be here next week at all. Going to be in Detroit." "My boss asked me to stay an extra day in New York."
And the assumption is that I'll do everything to keep them up to date, funneling information to them on the road, taking in work late, etc.
I get that they're busy people, with families and jobs, but even my stupid little class needs to be a priority at times, doesn't it?
