I dread to find out what mess staff have made of the systems over the two days I wasn't around. I always wonder about when I take annual leave - I could do with a longer break, but I always consider whats happening around me at work. If I take time off at the wrong time then it could cause serious problems (at my last work it was 'seriously critical'). I don't not take leave because of a reason, but I try to ensure that the problems are lessened (less work for me when I return). Maybe I should ensure that there are a lot of problems - but then again, staff and students are perfectly capable of creating a mess without me anyway.
Oh well - thats life, back to the grind and I wonder what comments students will come up with next. I still try to wonder what made one student said to me - strange to consider why they would come out with such a statement. Maybe I shouldn't worry about it, students are stranger than normal people - but I can beat them all at strange.
