I'll Take Things I Don't Want To Hear on a Tuesday Morning for $2000, Alex

  1. "Sorry, we've only brewed decaf coffee so far."*
  2. "No, ma'am, we've discontinued that Aveda product you've been using so blissfully for the last three years."
  3. "I know you're in the middle of a class, but just off the top of your head, could you put together a comprehensive list of books for me on the topic of history in the Middle East that includes both a recent chronological layout and primary source documents? No? Well could you do it for me by third period?"
  4. "I know we told you that you'd be eligible to receive Professional Development Points for that conference last month. We were wrong."
  5. "As you can see, tomorrow's agenda includes a three hour seminar on Sexual Harrassment. We will be looking for volunteers to role play."

Sigh. This is going to be a rough week.



*Who the eff brews decaf first? Like anyone's going to rush in, already late for work, just so they can get their decaf fix?

I say, do an amazon search of "middle east history", hit the print button, and tell that teacher to shut it!
p.s., i love that there is both a "concise history of the middle east", as well as "a brief history of the middle east".

Considering the average age of the books in my library is 1989, I would say that the most current info. I have on the Middle East would be... gee, before the Gulf War? Would that be a help?
