ANPE is still harassing me about finding a job. Just one day after sending me a letter saying it was ok that I didn’t go to the mandatory meeting because I had found a job, they send me an offre d’emploi and apparently want me to tell them for a THIRD time that I have indeed found a job. I’m starting to think that place is run by monkeys. No, that’s a bit too degrading to monkeys. I hope I will never be unemployed ever again…
I’ve also been waiting about two months to get one last document from the rectorat so I can complete my lectrice contract paperwork. So far they have ignored every single one of my e-mails (all five of them) and constantly told me to call back “next week” when a different person will be there. Their excuses range from it’s summer so everyone is on vacation to it’s September so everyone is busy with la rentrée. I’m sorry, should I have called before I knew I was hired and needed this document?? ::sigh::
I went to a training session at the university yesterday morning for the new computer labs and I feel like the biggest nerd ever because I loved every minute of it. I hope the students realize how lucky they are to have this technology to help with comprehension and pronunciation. Even just a few years ago when I was an undergrad, we had nothing but cassettes. Either I’m older than I want to admit or technology improves really, really fast.
Fall is already here – I have to turn on my little heater in the mornings – and I go back to work next week. Not so excited about the first, but have been waiting 5 months for the latter!
Not even an hour after I posted this, I received yet another letter from the ANPE. They scheduled me for another mandatory meeting and asked once again to tell them if I have found a job!!!!
