Parking situation is no excuse for tardiness

Editor’s note: This letter is in response to the letter “Parking ‘solutions’ offered in Tuesday’s article are laughable” published in Wednesday’s edition.

Dear Editor:

No, I am not kidding, Brett Delaney.


Also, I was not offering “solutions” to the parking issues on campus. I simply shared how I had gotten around dealing with the parking debacle when I was a student.

I will admit now that I am an employee, I have been given an opportunity for an alternative perspective on the situation. I will not, however, condone the parking condition being used as an overwhelmingly common excuse for tardiness, which happened to be the topic of the interview in which I was quoted.

One thing I have learned in my 13 years of affiliation with this campus is that no matter what “solutions” are offered, there is no way to please everyone.  All anyone can do is try to offer helpful hints and possible alternatives.
