How Random Babbling Becomes Corporate Policy

Hmph- that'll do it.

Not next week, but the week after, I'm being shipped to Harrisburg again. Originally, it was for Wed.,Thur.,Fri. to teach ITIL (which is a stupid, dull, boring class to teach anyway). Then they tacked on two more days for some SQL Server class. I shuffled my feet on it, kicked at the dust, and said I'd deal and take the damn class. Team player, etc. Made a stink, made it clear I didn't want to do it and was displeased about how my schedule had been changed on moderately short notice. Also, from the way emails were forwarded around, my extra two days in HBrg were agreed to without my input at any point- I was notified after the fact.

Well, that trip means leaving on Sun, 8/27. Mid-afternoon. I have a show 8/27 starting at 9pm. I've known about the show longer than this sudden onsite change, and the show wins. This also cuts the length of my trip down from five days to three. So I win on every count- I'm not doing the onsite, I'm doing the show, and my excuse for getting out of the onsite is nice and binding and confirmable.
