Category 5 Shitstorm

So the situation from last week got resolved. I went yesterday to a dean at my school and described the egregious behavior of last week's prince, and she was as shocked as I hoped she'd be. I had visions of administrative retribution, my word against his, and some kind of further trauma occurring in this meeting, but luckily she just let me talk and was very supportive. The first thing she said, after apologizing on his behalf, was, "What would make you feel better? What can I do to help you move past this?" I had been sure there would be way more fighting than this, so actually I wasn't sure what I wanted.

Well, that's not entirely true. What I wanted was to tie him to a chair and torture him creatively, such as by pouring Tabasco on his face, like in "Swimming With Sharks." Short of that, I just wanted some assurance that his life would be made slightly more uncomfortable on my behalf. Obviously that wasn't going to fly, so instead I proposed that he apologize in a sincere way. Simple enough, right? She promised to see what she could do.

This afternoon my cell phone rang in the middle of class, and someone left an awfully long message. I checked the message during break and listened with glee as a very uncomfortable administrator asked my forgiveness. Basically, the only thing he really apologized for was my having taken anything he said personally, but I know it's not going to get any better than that. Clearly, putting the blame back on me for having taken his very personal and insulting comments and accusations personally was not the apology I had in mind. But I will sleep just a little bit better tonight knowing that I have been a thorn in his side, and with any luck, will continue to be so for awhile. Just as long as it hurts just a little bit to be him, I feel as though I have done my job. Thanks for doing business.
