This is Stupid

The Pursuit of Pointlessness

I woke up an extra hour early this morning in order to attend a meeting for work. 

A team from an outside agency is here this week to instruct us on some new procedures that will be in place soon.  Blah blah blah work blah…

Unfortunately we waited around for fifteen minutes for the team to arrive (they were waiting on one of their members who would still not arrive).

And what a group I was with.  Not only was I the only person in their 20’s, except for one other person in her late 30’s/early 40’s, everyone has reached that half century mark.  Which is nothing against my elders, but it’s hard for me to get up and going on a Monday morning, and even more so when the topic of conversation is retirement and calcium deficiency.

And I was there because the new procedures involve the computer, which my boss approaches like Derek and Hansel.

The meeting lasted an entire 5 minutes as the team introduced themselves.  No immediate training , no handouts of information, nothing!  Just introductions.

Goo-o-o-d morning.
