RE: Rants.
I hate it when managers make stupid business decisions and expect me to comply. When a team is understaffed, you don't borrow them do somebody else's work and then expect that team to be able to finish its own work. This logic (or lack thereof) is akin to me having a paper due at the end of the day and helping someone to do theirs and then not finishing mine. I have bitten my tongue so much it's about to fall off.

I also hate it when the thesis department changes its guidelines all the time and fails to inform anyone, so that as a student you must somehow intuit the fact. How can students hit a moving target, especially one that moves so often, even the admin assistant of the English department doesn't know what is going on?

I'll save the coworker who make mother jokes eight hours a day (that's the only joke he knows, and it's not funny anymore) for another time. I have to work with him tomorrow. Gotta remember to bring the IPOD to save my sanity...

PS: One more thing: I hate it when companies cut back labor hours to make their bonuses. I hate it for three reasons:

1) Labor is not the only cost of the company. There are other expenditures that could be mitigated but labor is the easiest to negotiate. Easy = lazy.

2) Reducing hours is often detrimental to the company, leading to empty shelves with product in the back, lost customer service, etc. The shelf has been empty of an item my mother has wanted for a week. I told her with one person working in that department, and it being in a mess like it is, it's a wonder anything is out there at all. Believe me, it shows.

3) People who work at stores do not make enough money to be able to afford to have their hours cut. Cut hours shows a gross disregard for human life, or at least a diminished value on people who work at menial jobs, as if poor = of little value.

Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become. CS Lewis.
