"as a consultant"? Seems like that should be standard for anyone renting a car in a region with snow.

Maybe just buy an ice scraper and expense it?

From what I've observed, rental car companies have specific dates when they start and stop putting scrapers in the car (for all customers). Your ask might be to expand the range. Or, you can check and see if the rental car has one before you drive off the lot, then ask for one.

An an entitled bigwig, I must throw my role around instead of say ... improvising. Deal with it, bucko. Everyone else does.

Is it normal for you to ever be “ghosted” by your administration? I feel like I’m constantly emailing, calling, texting, and meeting with them and nothing gets done.

This is at a district where I travel between 3 schools and have 3 principals. They’re all like this and communication is especially important since I have to travel.
