Anonymous asked: Can you show some love for those of us who have to work today? Not only do we have to deal with the lack of friends to talk to when we're bored on Facebook, but high schools are closed, so we can't call and bug counselor secretaries either. At least their inability to schedule visits when I wanted gave me something to complain about for the day...
Why? and how? Why and how can our universities legitimately ask overworked and underpaid individuals such as ourselves to work on LABOR DAY? Let’s review this fantastical (apparently optional!) holiday known as Labor Day -
This holiday, which became a federal holiday in 1864, was to HONOR the economic and social contributions of its workers.
…so, why were we at work today? Oh, because educating tomorrow’s youth obviously does not make a social and economic contribution to our society. Education schmeducation. Psssh.
Bonus points today if your boss was out the office . Solidarity!
