Bearer of bad news

Apparently that's my job title today as I have had to give 2 not so pleasant pieces of news to folks.

1 - I had to tell a guy who has been unable to work for the last 6 months due to an accident (not on the job) that we are ending his employment effective December. This was not a complete shock as he knew it would happen eventually but still. Not too fun.
2 - Less traumatizing, but I had to explain to a faculty that although she had been here for 4 years, only the year in which she received benefits (50% time or higher) counts so she only gets a portioin of tuition remission vs 100% for her kid... and this would be for the next 2 years. After that she gets 100%.
