This cartoon reminded me so much of my former supervisor, Mr. AP. At every department meeting he manages to bring up teachers who have retired and to mention repeatedly how awful they were. These teachers were not awful. They were well liked by the students and other teachers and went above and beyond their work requirements daily. They just refused to bow to him and revere him as a God.
It always strikes me as funny how the comics manage to portray real life so well.

This is so true. Adjuncts make a great hourly salary. It is a fantastic way to supplement a paycheck or a pension but it is a crappy way to have to survive. I have worked with adjuncts who go from school to school and teach 8 classes. And, while many adjuncts are better teachers than their full time colleagues, they do their students a major disservice as they are not around for office hours and extra help.
I love being an adjunct but being an adjunct is not a career.
