I now had to sit through yet another endless meeting where people were wailing and moaning how they shouldn’t be evaluated on research because COVID prevents them from getting published. In the meantime, I have a huge deadline on an article tomorrow, and I’m thinking that the 4 hours we have wasted so far complaining about how hard it is to write could have been used to produce 500 words for an actual article. If you have time and energy for a stupid meeting, why don’t you have any for writing?
Oh, and they shouldn’t be evaluated on teaching and service either because COVID something something. And in any case, they can’t publish and the students write them bad evaluations because of “structural inequities,” so nobody should ever be evaluated again at all. Hours of this, and I’m ready to strangle somebody.
If students give you poor evaluations, it’s because you are a bad teacher. If you can’t publish, it’s because you are a bad scholar. Can someone tell these whiny babies to grow up already?
