The down-side to be a tenured faculty member

1. It's nearly impossible to find an event with free food on a daily basis so you have to budget money to feed yourself. Meals should be provided.
2. 2 or 3 times a year, you have to cancel a week's worth of classes to fly to a tropical island to spend 30 minutes reading a paper to a group of 20 people who have already read your paper.
3. 10 AM classes require setting the alarm for at least 9:30
4. Self-righteous indignation requires a great deal of effort.
5. It is difficult to establish a properly elitist lifestyle when you have to be subjected to people in lower castes.
