So.

I work for a school district as the web developer and maintainer.

A bit ago, we had a problem that was causing the entire website, namely pages involving the database to not respond at all. After further investigation, it turned out to be a file that was part of the calendar deployment. So, pending further investigation, my supervisor recommended that I disable the calendar. So I did. Now people are bitching at me and I'm getting complaints like, "Why is the calendar down? I saw a bunch of the principals today, and they were all ticked about it. Get it up." from someone who isn't in my chain of command at all. So I shot off this as a response ->

think I got my point across that I know what I'm doing and I know what needs to be done..?

I think so, looks like a pretty good response to me. But, if its anything like where i work, people will still bitch about it anyways. So don't be surprised if you still keep getting complaints about it.

They mostly are.

It took me 3 months of employment to get a key to my office. Not because i was still a probationary employee.. because that's just when they got around to doing it. Also, my office door is a one-way lock. If you leave and close the door behind you, you need a key to get back in. Let's just say there have been times where I stepped out of my office to use the restroom or get a drink from the vending machines.. and someone closed the door because, "there are thousands of dollars worth of equipment in your office."

It took a year to get my name on my office door. Not because of whatever... because that's just when they got around to doing it. So whenever I was expecting a visitor or something, I'd have to instruct them to "From the front main entrance, go through the media center and it'll be the last door on your right. But if you come in through the performing arts center, its the first door on your left."

Kind of annoying.

Oh and they wont give me benefits because "it's too late in the year to include you in the budget plan&presentation." So, because I turned 19, my health insurance under my mom expired. So now I'm uncovered. I went to the ER a few weeks ago for a spider bite that made my eye swell up pretty bad. Cost me $200+... just for the doctor to come in my room, look at the spider bite and eye for literally 5 seconds, then walk out... having the nurse come in 45 minutes later with antibiotic prescription. Not only was it expensive but it was lousy health care. I'm going to complain about that.. but that's a story for another time.

But yeah, it takes FOREVER to do anything in this district. They do stuff really poorly and technically, I am underpaid.

But hey, it's a non-profit educational establishment. I can't really complain without sounding like an ass.

Dude.

I went to the ER. The doctor came in (after waiting for like 30 minutes) asked me whats wrong. I said "I think i have a bug or spider bit" I pointed a few CM from my eye, where there was a swollen bump with a black dot in the middle of it. This bite caused my eye to swell closed.

She walked in. Got about 2 feet from me, look at it for no more than 10 seconds. Said "we'll put you on antibiotics." and walked out. 45 minutes later the nurse came in with a prescription for antibiotics. And a discharge sheet that said "Your caregiver has diagnosed you with Cellulitis..." The visit cost me $175 for one thing and $50 for something else (can't remember).

Why should I have to pay $200+ for poor health care. How can any doctor make a diagnosis by looking at something from 4 feet away for 5-10 seconds? She never came back and discussed it with me.. etc etc

And also, it's interesting to note, this is the EXACT same doctor I had last year, when I had to go the ER for excruciating backpain. Turns out I had sciatica. But she yelled at me and said she should leave me untreated so I might suffer.

I have a history of many family members working for a school district. I also have an EXTENSIVE history of lousy medical treatment . . . I know that neither are to be envied. Sounds ridiculous.
