My daughter just started back to school after taking a few years off. Now she has done everything asked of her in a timely and efficient manner. She has made sure to dot her I's and cross her T’s. Great, no problem.
Well yes there is. The people who work at the university should all be sent back to elementary school or even kindergarten. The people who are in charge should be sent out to dig ditches with someone watching them every moment because they obviously can't be trusted with anything.
She has been dealing with trying to get everything done for this semester since last April or May. She had called, gone up there, sent emails and in spite of trying to make sure everything was taken care of they still haven't gotten 'their crap' together.
With every contact she would ask is there anything else I need to do or have. Instead of giving her a list they have doled out one item at a time. A number of times they didn't even bother tell her there was something else that had been neglected. She often found this out at the last minute and had to bust her ass to get it in to them on time. Usually with only minutes to spare.
Come on, are they really that inefficient? Have they got their heads so far up their asses that they can't do their jobs? YES.
She found out today after starting class that there was still something left unattended. Something very important.
What is it with higher education? Unless it’s tied into sports in some way then they don't have time for you or they ignore you all together. The people who work there are evidently so lazy they can't get off their rear ends to do their frigging job. These students pay a fortune to attend your institution of higher education and you treat them like crap. It's a shame that these places of higher learning don't have to do business the same way other companies do business. You know the paying customer is your main concern. Oh wait I forgot, big business doesn't even work that way anymore.
Well I guess the ignorant morons that these places hire couldn't get a job anywhere else. They're not smart enough. That's a scary thought. Maybe my daughter should think about going somewhere else. If these people are any indication of what is coming out of there I guess I should really be worried. Please baby find somewhere else to go. I don't want you graduating a moron.
Update. Gina is graduating in May. She has been accepted into the Psychology Honor's Society and I'm so very proud of her. Did she come out a moron? Nope, no real thanks to the school at times. I swear these little mix-ups, late notices, and general stupidity continued but she managed to maneuver past it and here we are. She has come out of this with a clear idea of where she is going, grad school to work toward her PHD specializing in IO psychology. For those of you who have no idea what that might be, well you know all those little surveys and questionnaires that your company gives out and you curse the person who came up with the crap? Well she might be one of those people you'll be cursing in the future. I know. I tried to raise her better. Anyway, congratulations Peanut and I am so very proud of you.
