How Random Babbling Becomes Corporate Policy

Best Business Trip Ever?

Monday and Tuesday, I'm scheduled for a class in Glens Falls, an hour north of Albany. Being carless, and receiving no support from management, I was left on my own to figure out transport. I'll take "Cab Rides", for $100, Alex. They pay my expenses, so, screw them, right? Well, in my typical world of "no support from management", I show up at the time I'm supposed to (7:30), which is actually 30 minutes before they actually open. Freeze my ass off for a little bit, head in. Setup for class. And suddenly, the owner discovers that the two people that this training was for aren't available for training today.

So the class is cancelled. Cue a cab ride back (to the center), and so this business trip is now over. A small morning event that is past. Excellent.

They want me back out there for this at some point, but hopefully after seeing my expense report, management gets off their collective asses and does something. Of course, this screws the AE who sold the class- apparently the way this boils out we're going to actually eat the cost for these two days. Man, there are some mental midgets in charge.
