Debts and deadlines and headaches oh my

I am a professor at a public (state) university. I have a research account that I use for trips to conferences. I often have to pay things like hotels out of pocket and then submit receipts and paperwork to get reimbursed. It is often difficult to do this because the website for the paperwork is hard to use, so I put it off. Also, I was trying to get a car service to send me a receipt and thought I'd send all my receipts at once. In short, I screwed up and did not file the paperwork on time for an expensive trip. I was given an email notice a couple of months ago. Then yesterday Friday at almost 5 pm i got a notice saying March 9 is the 90th day and so nothing would be repaid then. I wrote the travel office and said I would get it in Monday. They said no. I quickly emailed them an expensive hotel receipt. They did not respond or process it. This seems to be a rule made by the travel office at my university within the last few years. [more inside]

A TR by any name is just as sweet?

My father was a fan of Teddy Roosevelt; he moved to Oyster Bay in Long Island and got a big kick out of the fact that TR was co closely associated with the town. He died a year ago. Because of this, I added the following on his footstone under his name &c.: A light has gone out of our lives—TR. The cemetery, though, says it doesn’t allow references by name (including initials) to anyone other than the deceased on the footstone. They’re asking me to tell them what TR stands for; if it stands for Teddy Roosevelt, it’s off. It apparently turns, absurdly, on my subjective intent of what TR means. I’d like help from the MF community coming up things I can tell t I can tell the cemetery deciders that TR stands for.
