Things I learned in state government training this week.

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.
