i handed in my thesis.
doing the thesis was fine.
dealing with administration was a pain in the *ss.
they dragged their heels the whole way...
from altering a number field on my application and then resubmitting it (late) on my behalf (so they weren't going to process a late application)
to taking more than 6 weeks (standard) to process the application
to people with grand titles (but no authority i could see in university decision making or regulations) proclaiming that no i couldn't do this or no i couldn't do that or that x or y or z was how things needed to be

the idea is supposed to be:
these are jobs.
these are (at the end of the day) government jobs.
jobs that are paid for out of GDP.
jobs that are paid for out of international student fees.
they are good jobs for the people.
they pay alright.
people feel... good about themselves. i guess.
they have titles and they have proclamation power...
and i guess a lot of students believe they have genuine authority.
and maybe they do. if there's enough of them. i don't know...

i'm glad i'm not located there.

why is it so hard to have organisational structures do what it is that they are supposed to do (facilitate the production of quality, timely work).
all the time with all the blustering and group meetings and winding each other into a state of mutual offense or...
then you gotta hire a manager...
and a manager to look after the managers...
and so it goes on.
