I called about it again today, and while I realize there is a fire going on in the area, it isn't like thier trainer is out there fighting it (the guy makes me look to be in good shape). He basically told me to go fuck myself and try to get with a local hospital for training. Really? He has 2 of the only 3 certified train the trainers on Post and that is what I get.

    The larger a company gets, the closer it approximates the government. We have offices all over the country, 20,000 employees, and are only a subbranch of a global company.

    Exactly. I just do not understand why people make things so difficult.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Ah, I see. Well, good luck with that. I need to win the lottery already. Oh, and thanks for the numbers a while back (and thanks to Geo and Skink too) so far no luck though.

    I have worked in training and feel your pain. I both loved it and hated it for the reasons you do. My current agency has both LEO and Fire/Rescue under one agency umbrella. The Fire side will not train the LEO side in CPR. They say it is against their policy. WHAT!!!. We work for the same place and have the same boss!!! I'm glad it isn't my problem at the moment.

    I just had to explain to one of my bosses the idea behind the 100- year floodplain, right down to having to break out the statistics. He's a biologic engineer (no clue either, he does more with civil stuff that that), so I could grasp it until he'd told me that he'd messed with FEMA floodplain maps before, in FL. Whuh?!

    It looks like I picked the wrong week to quit drinking

    If any of us start, then we should all have a double.

    Drink until double vision? Honey, I don't need help with that...

    (Yes, I know what a double is.)
