Ridiculous comments given at lesson observations

    One of my fellow PGCE-ers had this happen when the college lecturer was out to observe her (we called them crits, is that general?)
    Perhaps to avoid possible complaints, he gave her an A for the lesson. Perhaps that's a good strategy, send 'em to sleep,

    Ooooh the irony. The HOD was happy to transfer your useful energy in planning the lesson as a store for one of her own lessons, so she had energy to expend giving nonsensical feedback! (Hot air or what)

    That is exactly the way energy transfer works in schools!

    I did badly at an interview a few years back, and the attitude of one of the interviewers really stayed with me, not because it was unusual, but because it was classic.

    She spoke to me as if she was a judge, and I had just been found guilty in her court.

    "It wasn't "Thank you for your time, I am not employing you because you didn't do "X" and I didn't like" Y""

    It was more like " You disgusting, worthless, evil individual, you have been found guilty of XYZ and I am sentencing you to unemployment!

    This is not uncommon sadly. Some managers treat job applicants like they are supplicants before the poor board. Stuff 'em.
