Dear College Tenure Committee

According to the calendar of deadlines the University provided me with last fall, my deadline to respond to your report and recommendation regarding my tenure & promotion decision is this Friday, 5 p.m.

When may I expect your report?

Sincerely,

Notorious Ph.D.

They haven't told you yet? Procratinating jerks!

Word verification: "ethipybo," which sounds to me like some sort of tropical snake.

Good luck, good luck, good luck!

Thanks. I told my chair, and she's going to prod the appropriate parties.

@CD: a tropical snake with an ailment of some sort.

My word verification is the appropriate-sounding "flensub." As in, what one does when one's institution doesn't deliver news in appropriate time.

And now, I have to do a second one, because apparently I spelled flensub wrong. Now it's "bodisser." I don't think I need to tell anyone what *that* means.

WTF? A third word verification? Maybe the system knows I'm making fun of it.
