Screw Up Tuesday June 24, 2008

Posted by Mistress B in Ramblings.

No witty introduction today. No sparkling preamble.

I’m ticked. I’m damn annoyed.

We’ve been running a Cadet brigade of highschoolers through introductory fire fighting training for the past 8 weeks and now one of the bosses decides that we aren’t doing things correctly because of some paperwork not returned to them that THEY didn’t send out to us in the first place! He wants to come talk to us on Wednesday. He told me that we can’t do most of the stuff we had planned  over the next two weeks as a result of this missing paperwork. Meh. We think he just wants our programme to fall on it’s face.

We’ve gotten no – as is zero, zip, nadda, nil – support from this bloke in running our programme. He showed up a couple of days before we were due to start, threw a folder at us with the standard programme in it and has left us to it ever since.

The programme has gone really well. We’ve discarded a lot of what was in the standard programme – just picked out the guts of it to concentrate on instead. We’ve had other local emergency services involved. We’ve kept our training sessions as hands-on practical as we can and it’s worked really well. The kids are happy, they are engaged, they are enthusiastic and the trainers are all very happy with them.

The only kink in the whole thing has been being hassled for paperwork that we weren’t given in the first place which really isn’t our screw up! We’ve got him this time though. A phone call to our zone manager later and this guy is going to get a rude shock surprise when he shows up on Wednesday to tell us how we are screwing things up. We’ve got a folder full of paperwork to shove up his arse dump on him before we run off to play with our cadets. We also have an afternoon jam packed full of fire extinguishers, fire blankets and experiments with how different types of household furnishings will burn for the kids. 🙂

So, have you screwed up this week? Have you munted anything? Have your loved ones ballsed up? Is someone elses flubb up causing you some grief?

We want to hear them all. Leave me a comment and I’ll add you a link
