I gave a student a detention for sitting on the lab tables 5 minutes after I asked her not to sit on the lab tables. She didn't show up because "she had something she needed to do" but didn't tell me what it was so I gave her an office refferal. She complained to her father who is on the school committee who is ordering the office to release her from punishment. In the mean time, I'm getting a pinkslip as a "formality" but am assured that I will be rehired in June. I don't think I want to wait until June.
I don't care about the housing bubble anymore.
I'm more worried about the bees.
No really, this is a serious problem.
I think this has a lot to do with why.
