I'm having a bit of stress today...
I mailed papers to the M& E and History people sometime around Thanksgiving.
I've had no news yet.
It is making me nuts...
I know they are busy.
I know things get crazy.
but, we are pushing 60 days here folks....
-- and, I can't go to the next level until they do it.
The really frustrating bit about this is that I'm sure that if I were there, they'd have been read by now. They don't see me in the hall --- some of them don't know me -- and thus I'm just another obligation.
The people I've been working with directly are generally pretty good. My problem is with the ones I don't know.
I'm not sure what is reasonable... but, if they don't read them soon the set of excuses after the usual end of semester/holidays ones will get in the way.... and, in the end, this is part of their job. While I feel bad about nagging, I also shouldn't have to nag to get them to do their jobs.
