Save Me, Jeebus!

I'm taking AutoCAD training the rest of this week, and Thursday and Friday of next week. Five days total, 9:00 to 4:00. On the one hand, this bodes well for my contract being extended -- I doubt they'd sink the money into training me if I'm going to be gone in 4.5 months.

On the other hand, I'm already about to kill half of the people I'm taking this training with. These people can't possibly have ever operated a computer before. And to help push and prod these idiots along, the instructor is going through every step in excruciating detail.

I'm talking, six steps to copy a folder from the CD-ROM to the desktop. That should've been the first test: "Copy this folder from the CD-ROM to the desktop. If you can't do that, get the fuck out of here and quit wasting everyone else's time."

For what I learned today, I could've been out of there at 11:00. When I'm at work and need a break, I can surf the 'Net for a couple minutes. There, all I can do is play Solitaire and Minesweeper. Over, and over, and over again.

No certificate is worth this annoyance. I'd rather be at work.
