So yesterday I get an email and a phone message from the main office asking me to call a parent about the senior edition of the local newspaper. Apparently the honor graduates were left out entirely.
Now, keep in mind, I'm in charge of the school publications - the school newspaper and the yearbook. After we get done with the senior portraits, I send the image CD over to the newspaper. They take care of everything else.
Well, apparently, the paper left out a whole section of seniors from the special edition that they run right before graduation. And people are calling the school and asking how I could have let this happen.
Today, DURING FINALS, I get a call from the main office asking me to call one of our APs about the situation. AP has also been contacted by angry parents and wants to know how I could have let this happen.
WTF, people? seriously? SERIOUSLY?
Now, granted, I realize that you may not know what all is my responsibility and what isn't. But maybe, just maybe it would be a good idea to get your facts straight BEFORE assigning blame.
In the words of Jon Stewart: Go f* yourself.
