They released the timetable for Sept 2018 the other week. My heart sank when I saw all the bottom sets that I had been allocated.
The email said contact the timetable guy with any problems, so I sent a tongue in cheek email saying pleeeeeease could I have just one top set to balance it out a bit. He replied copying in my head of department saying it was up to her not him…
Queue a sh*tty email sent out later that evening from the HoD saying how dare people go over her head and contact timetable guy and how difficult it was to allocate classes when we have so many part timers making her life difficult.
So in one email, she makes it clear that part time staff are a nuisance – which is the majority of the department! Nice! Lots of part timers now feeling unappreciated, when in reality a part timer will put in a lot more hours per class than a full timer will (or feasibly can!!).
I asked my line manager to help. He has FOUR top set classes, and was happy to swap his top set Y8 for my bottom set. The boss said no! Her reasoning? She doesn’t need a reason.
ARGH!! Why do some people have to be such ar*e holes!?!?!?! It is impossible to know when she is in a good or bad mood and thus whether you will get your head bitten off over something so simple.
Here’s to hoping karma will bite her in the bum one day.
