This entire week I've been working the day shift, attending training courses for my state government job. It was as exciting as you would think. But I have learned a few things:
- Never trust a state employee to give you information before it's too late. I lost 5.5 hours vacation time that way this week.
- Yes, some people, in 2008, are still extremely confused by drop-down menus on computer forms. So cofused, in fact, that explaining how to use them takes up about 30% of the class time.
- Some people still aren't 100% sure if it was New Orleans that Hurricane Katrina hit.
Your tax dollars at work.
