All the teachers of a particular class at a particular college I happen to work at have been experiencing the same particular problems with particular "personalities." Unfortunately, I've been letting these personalities get me down more than they should this past week. After a bit of venting on my part, Jeff decided to help me out with his advice. Here's a little of the conversation:
Jeff: If you had worked at my Uncle Abe's farm in the summers, and a bad batch of peaches came along, you would know what to do: throw 'em in the seconds bin and forget about them.
Kathy: But they're people, Jeff.
Jeff: No, they're peaches. Throw them out and move on.
Said in true Jeff style. What would I do without him? ;)
