THE ALFALFA SEED PARABLE

Could could the administration have done something to help?

Yes.  They could have asked me this question.

Everyone told me what they thought I should do, or what they had done in what they thought was a similar situation (solipsism?), but no one bothered to ask me what help I needed.

The administrators were good about asking if I had any questions.  But it was a hollow gesture.

"I'm not going to support you for tenure.  Look for another job elsewhere.  Do you have any questions?"

How can I have questions for them, when they had no questions for me, showed no interest in me.*  Not even an interest in knowing what went wrong.
