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.
