Why do we bother?

It's nice to know that your profession is held in such high esteem by the general public. The BBC has a story on the TUC's unpaid overtime survey, and the comments on "lecturers and their thirteen week paid holidays each year" are making me depressed and furious by turns.

I totally sympathise as they never appreciate that you don't get 13 weeks paid holiday per se as you're working/planning for the next term etc.

More importantly if you are a University lecturer (as opposed to FE teachers who are often called lecturers), you are doing research or chasing research funding which is the thing which actually brings money into the University.
