Laptop confessional of a Foreign Languages TA

Regarding the "I hate you" line in the final portion of this comic... pertaining to how much I make, that is often very close to my gut reaction when I find out how much my friends with TAships in the antisocial sciences and engineering programs at my school earn. I don't hate them, though. Hey, the disparity between our paychecks is no fault of theirs! Let's just say that the commandment "You shall not covet" isn't easy to keep. I wish that my teaching responsibilities were smaller (and closer to theirs) and my pay higher (and closer to theirs).
