When you are the Big Kahuna you're the one who gets the blame. Isn't "Big Kahuna" Hawaiian for Big Target?? Well, you know what they say...when you're the Top Monkey, the higher you climb up the tree, the more your ass hangs out.
That pretty much means that as Da Boss of this here place, my butt is a moving target.
And today - for whatever reason - the staff were restless and I took more than a few shots.
And it always amazes me what the natives get the most upset about. The quality of education? Ha. Confusion about the email I sent about Lesson Designs?? HaHa!!
In order, here is what I was yelled at about today - yes yelled at (I have witnesses!):
A staff member is FURIOUS that TMIS will not move her phone across the room.
The same staff member was as mad as a wet hen that ceiling tiles (still being installed around the building) are being stored in the Ladies Restroom.
Another staff member interrupted me in a meeting to demand that I tell another group of teachers to stop storing their material in the lounge.
One of the coaches is RIGHTEOUSLY upset because we're in the 7th week of school and he still has 10 lights out in a remote section of one of our three gyms. I say righteous because he thinks he has "time on his side". (Well, come to think of it, 7 weeks IS a long time...I'll deal with this one tomorrow...)
Two secretaries got mad at each other because an administrator ON ANOTHER CAMPUS wouldn't answer his phone. (Never did figure out how this one involved me...)
Two teachers were upset that we couldn't provide AC until 8pm tonight...she asked at 4:00...it takes a form and two days advance notice to the Energy Management System. They will be hot. I'll be blamed.
I'm going home. I'm gonna rest my Bruised Butt and have a banana daiquiri.
And tomorrow I'll come to work and start climbing that same tree!
