Today I de-densified campus, as the administration is exhorting us to do, and stayed home to make chicken broccoli rice soup. It takes over 3 hours because I make my own chicken stock.
One department chair who is retiring soon and isn’t afraid of shitting on everybody’s online parade said that many faculty completely checked out and aren’t doing anything. Before, everybody at the very least showed up to the classroom and stayed there the required hours, even if they did nothing else. But now some people don’t show up to their “online classes” and just dump a bunch of PowerPoints online or show up for 10 minutes and then it’s class over.
I’m glad someone broke the conspiracy of silence about why we really choose “remote work.”
There’s no person on the planet who doesn’t cheat the employer at least a little bit if they can’t be caught.
OK, I’m back to working hard and saving liiiiiives as I snooze on the couch.
