Please Don’t Get Me Fired

The federal government gives money to American universities to have student workers. These “work-study” students can really help make a professor’s life easier. Or not.

My work-study is a sophomore and has been working for me for about a year now. She is so helpful, and I love her dearly. She has to record the tasks she completes each day on a time sheet. She just needs to write general things like “graded papers” or “ran errands”. Yesterday I asked her to take some martial arts equipment back to another professor’s office. They were wooden swords that my Japanese students were using for a cultural performance.

I looked at her time sheet today, and she had written, ” DELIVERED THE WEAPONS TO DR. MILLER.” That girl is going to get me fired yet!
