Hey, I may be pretty darned knowledgeable about how to get things done around the University and such but why...WHY faculty dude, do you think I would have the slightest clue where on our campus to move some tanks that are so large that evidently they might bust through a roof or how to even transport said tanks here? Hell, I've not even been IN half the buildings on our campus.

But thanks for once for not crying about the fact that I'm not giving you federal money before you have an approved research project. Because that's never gonna happen. You'll get your allotment when the feds bless your project and not a moment before.

Speaking of the feds, functionally illiterate faculty woman still can't log into her account because evidently she's not getting any of the password resets. I'm dubious about that. She also asked me "I seem to remember we had this problem when I was doing the annual reports, and thought you got it fixed then. Is my email the only one that is problematic?"

I resisted the urge to answer with "If you had listened to me and updated your email LAST YEAR, perhaps we wouldn't be going through this song and dance now." Instead she flailed away from her computer when she may or may not have locked herself out of her damned account back then too. Not to mention that when she finally got in last year, she filed her progress report as a final report and rather than go through trying to get the dope to do it again, I copy/pasted it over to the correct place. Evidenly her computer crashed multiple times then too. (I'm betting she's the type to click on links in those emails that are OBVIOUSLY spam ones that screw up your PC).

I worry that these people are on the roads.

I'd be more worried about meeting them on said roads. I don't think they should be operating vehicle...

Exactly. I have to wonder how the hell they manage to get dressed in the morning without putting their pants over their head and running into doors and knocking themselves out.

Ah, yes. Advanced degrees don't necessarily equal intelligence outside the subject area.

The old, sassy secretary at the first department I worked at here 16 years ago always said that the more letters they get behind their names, the dumber they get.

I'm starting to believe her with some of these folks.

I'm rather worried if they can breathe and walk at the same time...yeesh.
