..... or This is why I'm retiring early!
Totally not critter related, but I just have to share this before my voiceless scream reverberates across the valley.
One of the reasons I want out of my job is because of the increasing sense of entitlement which so many youth seem to hold today. Somehow their lives are so much busier than ours and so much more stressful and WE, the instructors, are supposed to bend over backwards to accomodate them.
In severe weather conditions, students can find out if classes are cancelled from several sources, the most obvious one being the radio. At the beginning of term, students are told which radio stations will carry an announcement if my institution is closed due to weather. Today I received this email:
"...If the school is closed, not all of us listen to
the radio so I'm not sure how to find out unless you email us."
EXCUSE ME???????? I should email a class full of students because you are too friggin' lazy to turn a radio dial????????????
That takes the cake.
Okay, rant over. I will go back to staring at the phenomenally beautiful but really irritating sunshine-on-a-foot-of-snow.
