@vickysteeves My university called me up to donate 1 WEEK after graduation. I said "fuckity bye" and hung up.

> I said "fuckity bye" and hung up.

you really need to be wearing a top hat when you say that. and tip it when you do.

@vickysteeves I get mail like that all the time! "please give to the poor university." uh... give me a raise instead ya cowards.

@vickysteeves what surprises me most is how many staff/faculty actually do.

@ted yes there are some folks in the library who donate and I just ... like ... we're the MOST underpaid! come on!

@vickysteeves @ted Yeah, I'm in CS, so we're like the 1% of professors (we're actually unionized, and in the same union as the librarians so the difference is not as shocking as it could be), but I still find the concept of donating to my employer bizarre.
