My schedule for the spring? Rather than teaching for 3 hours and 45 minutes, with a 15 minute break every 75 minutes three days a week, I am now teaching near FIVE FUCKING HOURS on Mondays and Wednesdays, putting me on campus from 8:30 in the goddamn morning until 4 pm in the afternoon AND teaching 2.5 hours on Fridays. Not even in the fucking ballpark of what I asked for.

Can I complain the quarter before I go up for tenure? No. Will I get the relief I was hoping for next quarter? No. Did my boss base her decision on knowing that my parents will be in town. Yes. Which is none of her fucking business whether my parents are in or not. Did she take into consideration at all what I was asking for and why? No.

I am so upset that I am shaking. Literally fucking shaking.

And if she fucking expects me to then show up on Tuesdays and Thursdays just for shits and giggles, she's out of her goddamn mind.

  1. Oh no! I'm so sorry. And it's outrageous that your chair was considering what she perceived to be your situation with your parents when she overrode your scheduling request (without consulting with you). Ugh. Yuck.
