It turns out that Kronos docked me because my boss made an error. I went to the dentist and so he put me in for four hours under the "DOC" code. He thought "DOC" meant "doctor." But actually it means "dock," as in a punitive deduction from my paycheck. Yipe! He was might embarrassed, but the University is paying me back for the missed hours.
Pride Before Kronos
In ancient days, the Greeks and Romans feared Kronos, the cruel God of Time who devoured his own children. In medieval Europe, he became known as the Grim Reaper. But in the 21st century, Kronos manifests himself as an automated timekeeping system, forsaking his scythe for telephones and computer terminals. My employer has fallen under his spell and forced us all to submit to diabolical will of Kronos. Yet one man stands proud and defiant before this tyrranical deity!
