Quote from: clean on September 30, 2023, 02:29:06 PMHad to fill up in san Antonio today. Went to a Circle K. Card worked, but pump never started. It looked like others were having problems with the pumps as well. I went inside and was told that they were out of gas. I said, "Usually they put a bag over the handle so people would know." They responded that they put "caution signs" out to indicate that they were out of gas. I said, "How does "Caution, slippery when wet indicate that you are out of gas?" Idiots. i went to a place next door, and after waiting in line and filling up, I looked and they STILL had not put bags or anything to indicate that they were out of gas.

Quote from: AmLitHist on October 26, 2023, 12:12:13 PMSo you're actually telling me that you only half-assed looked at my materials--and more importantly to me, the letters that my colleagues put a lot of time and thought into writing--and that it was, what, pre-determined that I wasn't going to get the award before you even bothered to decide? What the actual FUCK?
Quote from: sinenomine on November 16, 2023, 04:15:59 AMToday I expect to hear bad news about the choice for a senior level hire at my institution, leading to the loss of a very strong interim, and yesterday I witnessed a faculty member try to physically another senior administrator. This does not feel like a cheerful ramp up to Thanksgiving.
