So, I was upset at yet another demand on my time not shared by others and called my Chair out on it. That didn’t go great. Unfortunately, I wasn’t thinking clearly enough to make any kind of cogent argument and ranted on various issues. He’s not the vindictive type, but I suppose I’ll lay low for a while. It’s not like he can take away resources I don’t have. Tip for any administrators who may be reading: overburden your highest performing faculty member of the past [many] years and say it’s a sign of respect. Ah well, what am I going to do, not sign my contract for next year?
