The moment when you figure it out
July 12, 2011
So I had to fill out this form for work and it made NO sense. I mean no logic going on at all. As access forms go … it didn’t even seem like a rough draft.
None of my co-workers had seen it before, let alone filled it out. So we were all stumped.
And I hate that. I hate that feeling that something is THAT wrong because there’s this gnawing part of me that thinks that I’m missing something. That if I just had one little piece of information it would make sense.
Then I looked up this acronym on the form that none of us knew and it hit me like a lightning bolt. This form wasn’t for access. It was for new programs. Once I understood that, the whole thing made sense.
I was so relieved. I think I shocked my co-workers a bit with the bone-melting relief I got from solving the puzzle.
Oh well, they just have to learn how strange I am. It’s not likely that I’ll be changing any time soon.
