  •  One day not long after, maybe a month, (10+ / 0-)

    there was an outside observer at a faculty training. At the end of the session another faculty member introduced the visitor to the AP and made the mistake of calling her Mrs. X instead of Dr. X. Instantly, the jerk corrected the mistake taking great caution in pronouncing the word DR. slowly enough for everyone to understand her irritation.

    Can you imaging? She was such an asshole. When I quit that job after already being hired at a far better one I took the opportunity in front of her administrative peers to tell her exactly what I thought of her and made certain she knew that virtually the entire campus felt exactly the same way. Only time I have ever done such a thing as I strive to be professional. That case, however, I set my manners aside.
