Well I have had a few hours to calm myself down. I got a hefty dose of my tax dollars being spent in the most inefficient means possible this morning.
High School Registration.
Oh My Stars!
Now I am not a rocket scientist however I do believe I could logically lay out the campus of a high school in a more efficient manner than the county system we have in place.
I will also say that whoever published the map of the current layout of the building should get a big fat ‘F” in my book.
PLUS, I would seriously like to know who’s brilliant idea numbering the rooms with decimals is?
Seriously what wrong with good old fashioned numbers.
I think I am capable of figuring out how to get to room 507 without the aid of a decimal. I can even read a map if it’s oriented properly, which this one wasn’t.
I have never in all my born days experience anything as confusing or ridiculous as the layout of the high school that the DD will be attending. As soon as I can form a coherent word I plan to strongly suggest that who ever constructed that map of the facilities go back to cartography 101 for a refresher course.
Not to mention that there was no way to actually accurately follow her course schedule from start to finish because we couldn't find the up staircase or the down star case, so after trudging around the campus and up the down stairs and down the up stairs at least a dozen times in near 90 degree heat (air conditioning…if it was on it was so not working!!!) we threw in the towel and just went home defeated.
I can safely say that my anxiety was in no way lessened by the experience. The teachers seemed unable to decipher the map as well. We left after almost three hours still unsure of the most effect way to get from point A to point B. I have had visions of the freshman class running willy nilly around on the first day like tiny little white mice trapped in a mad scientists maze with no adult supervision what so ever.
It did nothing to calm my fears of sending my beloved child off on her first day of High School.
I don’t think these folks know what they are doing!
Seriously somebody please explain this to me…
Shaking my head with concern….
