When Bureaucrats Collide

My Facebook friends already know I'm frustrated over this, but it bears repeating.

Every year on our campus, Academic Year parking stickers expire before our contracts expire and before our work is done. In other words, we have obligations such as grading and end-of-term meetings with department chairs even after classes are over. But the other half of the system thinks we faculty are done right after Commencement.

Yes, to stay legal I do just buy a daily pass at the going rate. It's just an indicator of what we could do better, minor things that are overlooked, the system frayed around the edges. Parkinson's Law in action.
