i know i sign your pay cheque, but can you spot me $25?

in my mailbox at work yesterday i got an envelope from queen’s office of advancement, which is a fancy way of saying queen’s department of shaking you down. i guess it wasn’t enough that i get a call at least once a term asking me for money since i’m an arts and science graduate from queen’s, as well as a call once a term since i’m an education graduate from queen’s – now they’re pestering staff to give them money. the best part was when they said they could do payroll deduction: why even bother getting a pay cheque if you’re just gonna give it back to your employer anyway? i also wonder how many other jobs would have the nerve to ask their employees to pony up. off hand i can think of prostitutes and drug dealers.
