I live in a college town. Despite the university here being huge, the town feels quite small in part because nearly every household has at least one person affiliated with the school. Which means that I see coworkers make asses and/or fools of themselves on ND all the time. You know how in the search committee episode of The Office, a candidate that lives in Scranton asks for moving expenses to be covered so he can move further away?…that.
Oh, and someone started an argument a few months ago about whether all (and I mean all) university employees are underpaid or are actually a bunch of overpaid soft intellectuals who have never had a real job in their life and don’t know the value of hard work that devolved into actual threats of violence.
The lack of nuance in that “conversation” would’ve been stunning if not for the threats overshadowing it.
