For the three people who don’t know, the new Michael Moore movie is coming out. Apparently, my ex-boss also needed to let everybody on the staff e-mail list know about this as well.
But first, a little back story about a coup at a little commie-pinko-liberal-independent high school that uses lots of hyphens: Former boss (the Headmaster) tries to fire almost one-third of the teachers. Soon-to-be-maybe fired teachers get other teachers and the Board mad at the Headmaster. All of this with secret-ninja-board meetings, plenty of e-mails sent to everybody saying how this sucks followed by plenty of abuse of the “reply all” key and not-so-secret catfights alternating with everybody-play-nice lovefests. After seeing the futility of this, the Headmaster finally resigns. One lowly Art Teacher (me) is the only teacher not returning because it was a lay-off, not a firing.
His “retirement” party was not well-attended. (Then again, I wasn’t there so maybe it was, uh, fun.)
So, in keeping with the policy of everybody needs to get lots of e-mail, the former Headmaster sends out the date of the release of the movie **and he asks who wants to go with him. ** What the crap on popsicle sticks!? Does this man have any friends?
So I was thinking that I should reply, “Headmaster, Suuuuure, I’d luuuuuurve to go to the movies with yoooou!” Oh, did I say reply, I think the “reply all” button is the way to go on this one.
umm… usually, when people hit post too soon, they put the rest of their post in the one where they apologize for hitting post too soon, so if there’s something more to the story, everybody’s got all the facts. Unless that’s all there was to the story, in which case, why did you want to wait a while to hit post?
