I sent this email to the chancellor… it should explain. We are just a $ sign at this school.. The only good faculty are the teachers…

Hey, why is it that we are building all of these huge expensive buildings when there is absolutely no parking on campus? It costs hundreds of dollars for a parking pass to ONE lot, and a DOLLAR for an hour of metered parking? I spend 20 minutes driving around looking for meters everyday? The town of Amherst doesn't even charge a dollar per hour.. Most universities have free parking, or at least way cheaper passes that can be used almost anywhere on campus. This school is so money hungry. Not to mention, the tickets are totally expensive. I appealed a ticket that I got for parking in a wide open staff lot for 5 minutes, telling them that I couldn't afford it, and I got a cold replying stating that they don't care.. AND we pay $700 for one meal a day PER SEMESTER. I wish I had known all of this beforehand, because I would never have chosen this place. I'll do everything in my power to infer people.

commentI hope you don't become a lawyer, walk into a classroom, and say to the judge, "Gee, I wish I had known all this law stuff beforehand." You've certainly given me my laugh for the day.
commentThat should have read"…walk into a courtroom."
responseWhat does it mean to infer people?
