I am pissed off.
I work for a University outside of Hangzhou. On Friday I went there to get my schedule, 8 1.5 hour classes stretched over four days. Unfortunately, I must have a "teaching partner", someone I really do not want or need but am stuck. My first term there, I got a nice woman named Sophie, someone who is around 30 and very mature. She got pregnant and took the semester off and now I am stuck with a girl named Paula, who I feel is lazy at best and incompetant at worst.
I received my schedule and was told that only two of the eight classes will be meeting the month of September, one on Monday afternoon
and one on Wednesday. This was verified by both Paula and the FAO department liason(a nice woman named Lin, who I am also mad at)
This morning, I receive a phone call from Lin (the FAO) that I have class THIS (MON.) MORNING. I told her that there was a mistake, my class was for the afternoon. No, she said, in the morning.
says me. Lin told me that Paula called me
telling me of the change. This is false and Paula is a liar, which is what is really setting me off.
I hate to get angry, especially at them, but I am so sick and tired of the Chinese not being able to make a correct schedule, and then shift blame when they screw up. It's not my fault that I am not there this morning, it's theres. I told them I wanted Sophie as a partner, not this dingbat girl who acts 14!
Why can't Chinese just do a proper schedule and admit when they screw up?
