The Daily Tar Heel


Seriously, you write an editorial claiming that sending staff home two hours early on the day of a Thursday night game is an inconvenience to them? (“Major inconvenience,” Aug. 31) You claim leaving early would cause problems with “families, carpools or anything with a consistent schedule.”

But did you even consider the repercussions of them staying?

Probably not. Having the staff stay would most likely cause greater issues in schedule stability. By the time the staff would be trying to leave there would be an enormous amount of car and pedestrian traffic throughout campus and the rest of Chapel Hill, causing a nightmare for people trying to make it home by a certain time.

By allowing the staff to leave early they are granting them more ability to control their schedules, not less as you state.

This so-called “major inconvenience” is more of a blessing than anything.
