Don't apologize for giving a shit about someone.

What your alcoholic does with that information is on him, not you.

RE: Leave a message.
If you thought my discussion with my coworker was too loud, you could have politely asked us to keep it down (which I already was trying to, so as not to disturb you, with your door open). Loudly remarking about students being too loud and slamming your door isn't nice. For one thing, it's unprofessional. For another, I'm not a student, but even if I was, it still wouldn't make it acceptable. For a third, you're an Adjunct on a semester by semester contract, and I'm an Assistant Professor, and I was offered your course for next semester and turned it down because I figured you needed the money and didn't want to put you out of this job that supplements your primary one. Now, I'm not an asshole enough to go demand that I be allowed to teach that course after all, and put you out of your secondary income, but learn to treat other human beings with dignity, okay? You're probably just having a bad day, but that's no reason to start slamming doors.

Need to think of a witty signature.

Thanks and may give him a mix of that and an apology if I catch him when he opens the door to leave. Don't want to seem like a jerk, but also don't want to seem like a doormat to be walked over by someone I outrank in the hierarchy, and do (as with the case of the offered class) have some control over the continued employment of to an extent.

I miss you.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: Leave a message.
If you call the Pope "an antichrist elected by Freemasons" and anyone who disagrees with you "a cuck", maybe you shouldn't be calling yourself Catholic.
