What the HELL?!($&#&^^#&

Last week the Dean of the College call for a meeting for all Teaching and Technical Staff. He discussed the rules and regulations to be imposed to all the staff. He stressed that if someone wanted to take a leave from his duty he should ask permission by writing. Of course everybody do that. We can not simply leave  our post until the Head of the Department agrees. As part of the Teaching responsibility of the teaching staff he wanted to include the Quality Assurance. And other lots of blah blah blah...Most of the rules he laid out has been followed even from the previous administration. Complain against salary increase is none of his business. Complains of transportation coming to and going from the College is none of his business. But come to think of it. The College is far from the nearest city and most of the staff are staying in the city. A matter of consideration. Human heart. Humility. None of his business. I asked about why teachers should be given until 6 o'clock classes, he said this is the rule. The College should operate 8 in the morning till 8 in the night. Mmmmmmmmm. This is good. But where is the common sense? If classes can be handled and can be accommodated before 6 o'clock why not let the community suffer? When I asked this question, the Asst. Dean for Academics was upset at me. As I learned later on, this kind of question should not be brought up in the meeting. I was only asking. It is a crime to tell everyone the reason behind of putting classes classes when there are enough classrooms which can hold classes before 6 o'clock. Secondly... I suggested that as professionals, ETC should schedule their maintenance NOT during office hours or college operating hours. In their mind it was a complaint. I was not complaining about the services the ETC is offering but I am suggesting that ETC should shut down the NETWORK, when there are no classes, when people are not using the computer, when people are using the printer, when people are not using the College System... These are small things which lecturers are facing but these problems occur whenever the NETWORK is down. COMMON SENSE. Anyway, these sentiments are merely spoken for a reason that they are not listening at all. One thing I have learned from this. STOP. ENOUGH. Allah kareem....
