1 day down, 95 to go

So I'm going to this tech school 4 days a week for about 5 hours a session. Today was my first day.

How to turn on a computer. I kid you not.

See the blue icon that says WORD. (and don't forget the 5lb textbook with all of the MS2010 programs to learn). See the blank document???? Yeah, that's about it.

You didn't answer my question first, I had my hand up before she did!  I kid you not.

All of the other students in the class are USPS (post office) employees on workers comp who really don't want to be there. One guy told me as soon as his doctors tell him his knee is ready, he's going to back to work. So the blessed DOL is also funding these people. Who've been hauling mail > more than 20 years and have no interest in office management. All they want to do is get back to their post office and work there and have their union fight for them.

Since this is module learning, some of them have had Access and Outlook and Excel, others have no experience with a computer at all. Gonna be a long summer as people rotate in and out of the program. For this, the DOL is paying 7500$ in addition to whatever they are paying the career counselors, and for me, I'll be 63 when this farce is over. Out there getting 20 job applications a day 20 hours a week trying to find a position against people 30 years younger than I am.

I think it's time to get an attorney and file for SS disability retirement. Gotta be better than this.

outta here.
