Ancillary Adjunct's conversation with student:
AA: Yes, I'll be happy to wait in my office where you think I sleep for you to come and make up your quiz.
Slacker Sam: You keep sending out emails about office hours. I keep telling you I have a class at 5, but you say you're only there from 5 to 6.
AA: No, if you read the email you'd see I'm there from 9 until 6, so you can come in the morning. (Trying hard not to roll eyes or facepalm.)
SS: You're there in the morning?
AA: Yes, and have been for the last four weeks.
SS: Oh. I guess I'll see you in the office tomorrow, then.
AA: See you then. (Thinking, probably not, since you haven't come for the last four weeks.)
SS leaves. AA sighs deeply and thinks maybe it's time to go back to Corporate America.
****My schools all want us to get them to read, write and think critically. I think it's time just to make sure that they actually read and understand the words at all.*****
