Don’t you hate it when your management tells you that you need to take a class – get training in something that would make you more marketable and really increase your opportunities – then, after you do all the research, find a class and get ready to take it, they so: “What? Travel? Sorry – we can’t pay for travel to take a class.” I guess it’s off, then. I wouldn’t have minded except that they got my hopes up. So, I’m feeling a bit down today. I had hoped that I would have the opportunity to grow my skills in a highly specialized area, but it looks like that won’t happen. Sometimes, I hate my job.
