The new semester started this Monday. It is now Wednesday, and our timetable still hasn't been fully released. I have classes today that I still don't know which classrooms they're in.

Get it together, university.

That sounds like some of my nightmares I occasionally have about college...

I generally go to the auto place near where I work, since I spend more time near there anyway.
Went to work Tue an hour early to get my oil changed. “How long will it take?” “About 90min.” “Welp see you next time.”
-Today got up early to give me that extra 90min.
-Got done prepping about 15min too late, so I had the remaining 75min to sit down and really reflect on just how close I had come to success without actually achieving it.
-Spent 85min “reflecting” and almost missed my usual leave time, made it to work with only 4min to spare.
-Next chance I’m gonna have to do this is Feb 22, unless I want to leave for work at 7a tomorrow, which would mean going to bed tonight the instant I get home at 10. :(

Date (see Minor Victory thread) cancelled on me because she had another date over the weekend that went unexpectedly well, and she didn't want to string me along.

I know I shouldn't be as grumpy about this as I am - and I appreciate her honesty, at least - but after seven years, it was nice to hope, for once.

6 inches of snow broke the city and our transit system almost completely. I waited an hour and a half to get on this morning only to have 8 trains arrive full, should have been 3 times that in that time. Also, only at the third station down the line and they were already full.

Eventually, I just went home to work from there which I'm grateful I have the option to do but don't like to unless it's absolutely necessary.

Another history teacher at my school is going to be out for the rest of the week. She was here today, but she apparently she didn't prepare for the sub for the next 3 days.

Guess who just got told by the principal that they need to make 3 days worth of sub plans and email them tonight, even though I'll be here teaching my classes? This guy.

Fuck. Is it too much to ask that coworkers handle their shit so the rest of us don't have to cover for them?

We’re getting someone new in the top position at work because the main requirement isn’t experience, qualifications, having done the job before, meeting the actual requirements stated for the job or anything like that, it’s the arbitrary one of living where it was moved two years ago instead of where it was for the twenty years before that. So, new useless person will just get me to do everything, but take all the credit and get paid. Yay?
Post automatically merged:

Oh and it’s an older dude which matters. I don’t look my age and I don’t have boy parts, so I can’t be part of that club.

Customer: When do you have student deals?

Me: Usually at the start of the school year, in the fall.

Customer: Like, in June?

*headdesk*

Since when is June the start of any school year or in the fall?! Is this a climate change thing?!

Without knowing what kind of "student" you are dealing with, summer semesters at colleges start in June. Might've assumed you meant the beginning of all semesters.

Or they're dumb, I dunno.

For our school, it goes like this:

July - September: Fall
October - December: Winter
January - March: Spring
April - June: Summer

So maybe they are just confused about the school's terminology. I mean, January is SPRING?!? WTF?
