My Worst Moment: Going though the whole complaints process, only to find that the university couldn’t tell me what action they’d taken. The man I’d complained about is still working there, so I doubt anything has been done. If he wasn’t a professor, if he was a care worker or a bus driver, he never would’ve worked again after what he did. I’ve been left feeling disillusioned and angry.
