For about the last 1 ½ months, I have been attending special training meetings, with one or two meetings per week... which brings me to a total of ten meetings. Out of the ten, only one actually pertained to what my particular job function is. In our most recent training meeting, I was given an overview of COBOL and how our company uses it with an IBM server. This was one of those “bored to tears” moments where I was ready to give a primal scream or a yawp.
With each one of these meetings, I have tried to go into them with the hopes of finding at least one valuable nugget of information, something I can take away from the meeting and actually use or apply to my own daily grind. However, I really don’t need to know anything about hexadecimal or how many characters can be assigned to a specific line of code. Surely this is a Dilbert in action situation. Another despairing factor to all this is that these meetings are all passive. We sit and listen, while someone lectures. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!
btw- feel free to share your favorite Dilbert moment.

I've broken Uncle Bobby's heart by moving to Nebraska. I mean now that I'm no longer there cheering at all of his games...it must have taken its toll. Perhaps he thought I'd come back eventually, but after one month turned into two months and two months turned into... If only he knew I have plans on attending the TTU vs the Huskers.
What can I do to patch things up?
