I am unsurprised that University did not renew your contract, and that Other University, after meeting you, didn't want your services either.
There are two reasons for this:
a) they rely on their students for funding, and don't want you to drive them away.
b) they'd have to work with you for the foreseeable future.
They didn't want you because you are undoubtedly the most boring person on the face of the planet. I realise that its probably not your fault, but after 10 minutes in your presence I find myself wanting to autodefenestrate. I was so happy when the occupants of that flat went their separate ways.
Best of luck with the new gig in Treasury. I'm sure they need a few like you around to maintain the steriotype of the grey suited, grey skinned, grey lived public servant. There's probably a quota.
I'm going to get some lunch now. Don't follow me. If I'd wanted your company I'd have invited you. Bye now.
Please forget you ever knew me.
Not your friend.
Just someone who had to communicate politely with you every now and then.
