Why do I know more about aspects that affect my paycheck than my counterpart that has been here 8 years? Why do you people get confused by typing info on an internet page instead of writing it on a piece of paper? It’s 2012. Why have you never ever checked your departmental email? How did you find out about this meeting? Why does someone have to show you how to use the internet? Why did you type in a URL and go through 4 links when you could have just typed in the 4th URL which was shorter than the first? It’s 2012. Why did you just announce that I am to be in charge of a committee when you only once emailed and said you’d like to meet about it (ok, so this was new, and will be new misery)? Why do you pretend the remodeling will actually happen this semester – you’ve said it since I got here (3 years ago, and supposedly for 3 years before that)? What do you mean we need to instate rules for the intro hamster classes? I’ve been enforcing them for 3 years and I got the rule sheet from you! Did something change? No? And no one is new here? So why are we going over it again? No, I’m not new here. I’ve been here for 3 years, 7 semesters, and yes, I think I may have met you at this meeting before. Or in our shared office space. No, the professor that teaches the Biology of Hamsters did not make that cake. She brings it every semester, the same one, and you always ask if she made it, and she always says no and tells you where she got it!!! Anxiety attack justified! Brain hurting.
