STABBITY

A real email conversation between me and the Assistant Dean of my college (who, apparently, put the "ASS" in assistant):

Hi, Asstard:

Is the student graduating at the end of the Fall? I need to know this. Also I need the closed-course entry form from the student's adviser.

Thanks,
Gina

Hi Douchebag:

Oh ok, well that needs to be on the form or the RO will deny it. Also, I need the student's adviser to send me the form.

Thanks,
Gina

I sent you the form…RO will accept.



The student in question is an EDUC major. The Dean in the correspondence above is in the LIBERAL ARTS college, NOT the college of Education. Also? The Assistant Dean has been at his/her job for more years than I have been in my job, which is working towards 6. So...HE/SHE SHOULD KNOW BETTER.

Ok so WTF? Is this person retarded or just being a total douche?

I KNOW YOU SENT ME THE FORM. I HAVE EYES. I SEE THE ATTACHMENT. I need the student's ADVISER to send it to me. NOT YOU. GET IT? The ADVISER sends the forms to me for approval for their students, NOT some RANDOM ASSISTANT DEAN FROM A TOTALLY UNRELATED COLLEGE.

I didn't even bother writing back. I'm not approving it. As far as I am concerned, I need the form from the student's adviser. Period. Nobody cuts me a break, so fuck you.

And while I am off and ranting...WTF is so special (other than that they have 2nd-grade reading- comprehension levels) about student athletes? They get to have everything they want at the drop of a hat. Sorry. Gramma Waters don't play dat. Y'dig?

Every so often I read your blog. And today's entry was he-sterical. Stuff like that drives me absolutely insane. You just want to punch the person right in the face.
I also just saw you linked to MST3K. I'm a hooouuuge fan. Well, I used to be, but still throw in a tape every so often. "The Master Would Not Approve." Way back when I had a Torgo screen save. It was way awesome.

IN PAIN FROM LAUGHING.

That was awesome. Thanks for stopping by and commiserating with me!

LOLOLOL "The Master would not approve." Good stuff. My favorite show ever. God I miss it. I have lots of episodes on tape or DVD, but there was just something awesome about watching it on TV. SIGH. Have you tried Rifftrax? (www.rifftrax.com) It's Mike with Kevin Murphy and often Bill Corbett riffing on fairly current movies. The Star Wars pre-quels were pretty hilarious.
