The last post was true, but I should give it some context. I was asked to resign as a GA so I could be hired by the same department as a TA. It was just a formality and I felt I'd go out with a bang. However, when I forwarded the message on to Big Momma (who I thought knew about this stupid bit of bureaucracy), she got very upset. She thought I had been fired and had to drop out of grad school. While making her think this was kinda funny, it was also very mean and I apologize profusely to her for the misunderstanding.
