Today I had a six-hour long orientation session to go over benefits and why sexual harassment is bad. It was, to say the least, not very stimulating. But I was rewarded with at least one outspoken idiot who complained that, as a faculty member, sixty-percent of his salary comes from grants, he can't receive retirement benefits for a year (like EVERYONE ELSE) even though he was a post-doctorate fellow at a previous university, and he can't get extra benefits because he "chose" not to have children, which is, I think we all agree, totally effed-up since employees with children get a discount on their college tuition.
Seriously. The man asked if those who chose not to have children received some sort of prize to compensate for their non-existent offspring who can't get tuition benefits. "Does that seem fair?" he asked the benefits counselor.
I bet he's a Libertarian.
