Alrighty, then.

So, I used a study room this morning for office hours.  I headed up to my classroom right about classtime (got there a couple minutes early) and spotted two signs, one for each useless class scheduled in my room during my requested office hours, reading that the class had been moved because it'd gotten too big, and they'd gotten a bigger room.

Which made the front desk librarian even angrier than she already was, because these two admin twats didn't bother to tell the library that they were so doing. 

I get my preferred spot for office hours, at the times I wanted. 

I just wish there'd been less drama.  That particular librarian?  Yeah, she's pregnant, and due right at the end of semester.  She doesn't need the aggravation.

  1. Maybe she should go ahead and take maternity leave. She could have some bad effects from the stress.

    1. She gets six weeks, if there are no complications (like a C-section). She isn't due until December.

      I wish to goodness, for her sake, that she could just quit. She's gonna hate leaving her baby in day care.

    2. My wife stayed home with our kids until they were old enough to be semi-autonomous. Then she went back to teaching and took the kids to her school. As soon as they were old enough to be home alone, we switched to home schooling. My wife and I worked, we got the kids their curriculum and supplies from Texas Tech, and went that route. It worked out ok for everybody.

    3. I'd be willing to bet that, like most young couples, the librarian and her husband are carrying crushing loads of student debt and consumer debt that won't permit that.
