Sitting thru pointless meetings and concocting vapid "vision statements" which are lies to begin with and kowtowing to semi-illiterate deans and directors who make five times as much as we do and only delegate their imaginary authority while handing out bonuses to their lackeys who drone on and on about their "proactive" approach to multiculturalism and pseudotechnical astuteness. This place makes me want to puke. If the coffee wasn't so good, I'd quit tomorrow and THEN they'd see how easy it is to deal with students who don't speak a word of engrish and have the collective IQ of a bag of hammers. I'm going to the donut shoppe. Do you want me to bring you anything? What do you mean, shut up? Sick of hearing WHAT? That this place is a totalitarian matriarchy run by an illiterate vice president? What do you mean, I'm irritating? What the hell is a PERPETULAGRIPIST? Is that supposed to be an insult? I'm telling the boss that you Verbotomize when you should be working on that mission statement. It smells funny in here.

The fact that all this horrible food had added many inches to his girth was another source of complaint. If the food was really that bad, why did he clean his plate everytime and even ask for more?
